    Okay, all you smart folks --

    Where can I find good books/web sites on poultry genetics -- especially color genetics??

    How about this one:

    Genetics of the Fowl: The Classic Guide to Chicken Genetics and Poultry Breeding (Paperback)
    by Frederick B. Hutt

    It was first published in the 30's or 40's. I can't tell whether it has been updated, or if it might be out of date?

    Or this one:

    The Mating and Breeding of Poultry (Paperback)
    by Harry M. Lamon (Author), Rob R. Slocum (Author)

    Same problem -- it was first published in the 20's, but I can't tell whether it has been updated or not.

    Or where else should I look? There's gotta be books out there somewhere!
