Are we talking self-buff in chickens?


Because if so, it isn't just a single gene we can consider as recessive or dominant. So, it technically depends on the E base we breed it to, doesn't it?

(example - Buff x Wheaten makes a buff-esque bird but Buff x Birchen makes a black and brown looking bird)

Sorry, I have no genetic expertise to offer.
Just wanted to point you to this really interesting info on Buff Genetics and breeding that I was just reading on the AM thread. Great post with cool info.
