Split sex-linked albinism. Has one copy of the sex-linked albino genes.Hi MysteryChicken,
Thanks for following up! I'm not sure about the chicken you show in the picture. How much do you know about the details for this chicken? When you say "split" are you just referring to the fact that it has some appearance of being albino, but doesn't look completely albino? or are you using the term "split" to refer to the genetics? For example, do you know whether it has one copy of the normal gene and one copy of the albino gene? Or does "split" mean that this is a sex-linked gene and this is a male with one copy?
Sorry for all the detailed questions... I'm interested in this chicken, but unfortunately, I don't know enough of the chicken breeding lingo to know what "split" means.
He has very pink skin, & his eyes are a bit more pink then orange.
I got him from a barnyard mix hatching eggs this spring. So all I know is that he's mixed Black Copper Maran, & a Gamefowl. Not sure of the genes the parents carried, so I believe the Gamefowl side has the genetics for albino.
