    Hi, we are newbies and I was wondering if anyone can post some good links where we can read some introductory info on genetics. We have experience breeding other animals but are new to poultry, so need to get our feet wet with color genetics, etc. Thank you

    Welcome to BYC
    http://kippenjungle.nl/kruising.html
    : the Chicken calculator is chicken genetics 101
    I would also skim these threads for posts by it's creator: "Henk69"
    and those by Nicalandia and Illia. These people know their stuff
    There are many others, some of whom are experts on the genetics of specific breeds
    One problem with a forum is that not everyone who expresses an opinion knows
    what he is talking about. It is worth it to sift the wheat from the chaff
