Not Quite... he is Carrying both E(ER could also allow for so much Pheomelanin expression) and eWh(from RIR) which are NONE Rhodebar genes....The males in the pictures will make it easier to produce a Rhode Bar.
this means all E ER eWh genes must be culled ? And that would take several generations to bring these genes out? Bare with me, I need to study the genetics for beginners a little more. Sorry, the GFF RB ment greenfire farm rhodebar.Not Quite... he is Carrying both E(ER could also allow for so much Pheomelanin expression) and eWh(from RIR) which are NONE Rhodebar genes....
if he is to cross him to a RIR/Rhodebar hen(e+/eWh) he could cull the E(or ER) chicks but could have a hard time culling the eWh/eWh and eWh/e+ birds, not to mention the huge amount of chicks he would need to hatch just to be able to obtain the eWh/e+ chicks in the first place...
So my dominiuqe strain my have had gold somewhere in them you think? Thought they should have been mostly bared myself. Sorry about using initials... GFF RB ment greenfire farms rhodebarInteresting. I always assumed a Dominique was Silver not Gold to avoid red leakage in the plumage. And with the Dominique based on Extended Black (I thought) I'd expect a whole lot less red showing through anyway. I guess that's what I get for assuming. It's always fun to see what you actually get when you make the cross.
The rose comb is dominant. That cross should be split( R,r) so half his offspring will inheriut the rose gene and half won't.
I'm not sure what you mean by RB rooster?
