Hola amigos and amigettes, I have a 6-7 month old Shamo cockerel and want to breed him in the future. You see, his dad is a GIANT standing at 3 feet tall! Well, I'm hoping mine grows to be that big..... the question is, since his dad is a giant, do you think he will have that 'giant gene' in him and will produce big offspring regardless of which hen I choose to mate him with? Or do I have to choose a Shamo hen who is very big and worthy enough in order to have a higher chance of producing giants? I'm just confused as to the genetic height of parents, say one is tall one is short = average?.... Or is it, once one has the giant gene in them, it is seeded in there and regardless of the other partner's genes if it passes through to some offspring then you will get giants that has the potential of it's father/mother who is a giant or has the giant lineage?
