post your questions
Autosomal red is autosomal--NOT sex-linked
Dominant white is I, and it is also an autosomal gene
Recessive white is c, and it, too is autosomal.
Geese and chickens do not share the same gene set.
Dominant white can and often does leak colour; particularly red/gold (as in red pyle)
Recessive white rarely shows a feather or two of colour; never more than that, and in my personal experience, only black pigment has been leaked.
On re-reading and paying more attention, there are a lot of errors: birchen and brown red are identical except that brown red is a bird with gold ground whereas birchen has silver ground. Dun and choc are different genes that have a similar appearance. Self-blue is lavender, which is an entirely different gene than blue. Neither ducks nor turkeys share the same genes as chickens. ETC.
Mind boggling but interesting!
i didnt right this so i dont now
ok; what is your source? Generally folks list a credit for things they copy; that way there is a context behind what is written, as well as credit to the actual author. For example, Something written by a scientist or historian many years ago does not have knowledge and information that is of more recent origin.
there you go
Awesome, but really needs the credits behind it.
This is wrong:
Genetic Code: eb/eb S/S Co/Co = Columbian
Breed Examples: Light Sussex
Light Sussex are eWh/eWh S/S Co/Co . There are so many breed varieties based on eb/eb that use Columbian gene, people just lump the Light Sussex variety in there too. There are only 2 poultry varieties I know of which have the same genotype as Light Sussex. The Japanese bantam and the Columbian Marans . The Columbian Marans in the USA was founded on a cross to a Light Sussex. The Co gene is bred differently on either the eb or eWh locus. It also manifests differently. In eb, the birds can have black stippling on back and saddle if the depth of hue in the underfluff is improperly managed....not the correct balance to the top color to create the white body color in the top plumage. In eWh, the underfluff is white to the skin. No color balancing necessary no blacks tippling in body or saddle..unless the black in the hackle and tail is too much and then black stippling can appear on the body. But that is different from the misbalancing of the hue in the underfluff in eb/eb based Columbian varieties.
This is one reason the Light Sussex are such a fine fowl for beginners in fancy fowl.
in western PA. USA
so many wrong things posted on that paper
no one with basic genetics of chickens would have publish that.
