    I know 5 toes and dark skin is dominant (I think anyways). Barring is dominant as well as sex-linked.

    Hi, Obsessive! Welcome to BYC!

    I don't have an answer for you, but I'd love to have the same list.

    I just wanted to say that I have a bunch of the breeds that are on your list (Ameraucanas, EEs, welsummers, wyandottes, silkies, mille fleur d'uccle, polish, etc.). I love having an eclectic mix! There are an embarrassing number of photos of them all on my blog. Check it out!
