    Where can I find a book on chicken genetics? If not a book, is there a website with BASIC beginner poultry genetics?

    There is something on Feathersite I think. Let me go see if I can find it.

    Well I emailed the guy. Anyone else know of anything? I tried reading some posts on genetics but was lost because they speak in a whole different language of codes??

    Yotetrapper I was gonna tell you to go to the-coop and check there but I noticed you already posted there. I say get Hutts book, its pretty good. Also on the-coop there is a thread about the book poultry genetics for dummies that is coming out soon, it seems very helpful.
    The book from Grant (off of feathersite) is kinda helpful but only covers a few colors, we bought it for something like $12 US and it wasnt worth it.
