    Is Bearding dominant? Is it sex linked? IE: If I breed my Bearded D'uccle Roo with my Seabrite Hen will the chicks have beards VS if I breed my Bearded D'uccle Hen with my Seabrite Roo?
    I know the the feather footing is dominant, but was not sure about the bearding.

    Thanks!

    the Bearding gene is dominant and autosomal(no sex linked)
