    Does anyone have a chart, book, or website(for dummies) that explains what each of the genetic color traits are that are included on the chicken genetics calculator? I’m new to the whole process, and would love to learn about the coloring functions, but I can’t find anything basic enough to get started!
    Thanks!

    I too am new to this and I have been trying to figure things out.
    I can share some other site if you like.
    The more you read the more it kinda makes sense.
