    Just arrived!
    2008 pair of saddleback Sebs!
    I just love then! [​IMG]
    They're so sweet!
    These pics don't do them justice.
    Hope to get some better ones soon.
    I'm also getting a curly white, saddleback carrier gander in January.


    Smooth gander on the left, curly goose on the right.

    is saddleback a dominant trait? My friend has a tufted sebastopool, like a tufted roman but with frills.

    Thanks everybody! [​IMG]
    I'm excited and can hardly wait for the breeding season.
    They're around 8 months old.

    To answer your question...as far as SB's being dominant this is how it works when breeding saddlebacks to whites.

    NOTE:
    These breedings are sex linked!

    Saddleback gander x white goose =
    white females with black spots & all white males.
    All carry the saddleback gene so if you breed a white s.b. carrier to another white s.b. carrier or a saddleback they will produce saddleback offspring.


    Spots may not be plentiful or big or could be hidden under a wing etc.


    White Gander x saddleback goose =
    white males with black spots & all white females.
    All carry the saddleback gene so if you breed a white s.b. carrier to another s.b. carrier or saddleback they will produce saddleback offspring.

    So its not that hard to make Saddlebacks!
