    I've noticed several posts lately in both the "breeds in general" and the "everything else chicken" categories that directly address genetics questions. Since these topics ask for specific, and sometimes expert, help on breeding and poultry genetics, it seems like it might be a good idea to have a separate place to put these threads so that they get the focused attention they need and don't get lost in the shuffle. This is not to say that they've been ignored, because, actually, that's not been the case, but I was thinking that they might get more attention from the experts if they had their own section. Just a suggestion [​IMG]

    Whoa, I'd like that.
    It hadn't occurred to me that those posts would have been in "Everything Else Chicken", so....I've missed all those threads.

    A category for Genetics would be excellent.

    I would support this idea. Genetics is where it all begins. Anyone up for breeding and exhibiting topics?

    I agree. As our general audience of beginners or intermediate chicken owners move toward more understanding and advanced knowledge, there is going to be more of a need to help with this topic.

    I tried a search for genetics. Could those of you that know of any particular titles or posts direct me with links. Thanks in advance to all.

    There is a bit more interest in this than I expected. Let me discuss it with the staff.

    Are there others interested in this?
