    References both some of the work on establishing E allelles, comparing, and has photos? Is there a site with more common colors in seramas, their names and genotype? I'm poking around reading some of the coop stuff about color and cruising some sites but wondered if there was any one compilation somewhere?

    Best sites for color references even without genotype?

    Have you looked at the SCNA message board? They have a genetics section.

    You do have to register to view the forum, but you don't have to be a dues paying member of the SCNA.

    Somewhere I had a link to what you were looking for, but browsing my favorites, I don't see it. Will try to locate it for you. And yup, the SCNA has a genetics section. www.SCNAOnline.org will get you there in a roundabouts way, just look for the MESSAGE BOARD link in the navigator. Who knows, I may see you there. [​IMG]

    Oh, I know what I was going to say. Brian Reeder has a good book out, Genetics of the Fowl. I've found that to be a handy dandy source.

    Actually, Brian Reeder's book is called "An Introduction to the Color Forms of Domestic Fowl". I have it here in front of me. Hutt wrote Genetics of the Fowl. A loooonng time ago.

    You're right. I have both, and leave it to me to mix the two up.

    Which do you recommend most for a beginner? I tried (and failed) to read Genetics of the Fowl. I am a complete beginner at genetics. Just started An Introduction to the Color Forms of Domestic Fowl.

    I haven't read Brian Reeder's book but Genetics of the Fowl, while interesting, is rather outdated in some areas.
