    The following link is my trial genetics search tool. Please feel free to give it a try, however, realize that it is not nearly complete, but only a sample. At this point, only IB is available as a colour. Please also refrain from editing. A lot of hours have gone into it already, and you'd mess it up for everyone else if you did. Please also reset the filters when you're done.

    I am looking for comments, ideas, thoughts and criticisms (be polite though [​IMG] ) I haven't had the time to go through it again for mistakes, so be aware its not perfect. This trial version will be available for public use for a period of two weeks, after which, the link will be disabled. Thank-you and have fun.

    Wow, Arbor, I finally took a close look at that spreadsheet -- you have really undertaken a monumental task.
    (It makes me feel fortunate that there are only IBs here and I don't have to think about this kind of thing!)

    Many of the individual colours will be able to be cut an pasted, especially when I get a sex-linked colour done to.

    Arbor,I'll be the first to admit I know just enough here on genetics to maybe,maybe get a spark off of 2 pieces of flint but not enough to get a flame going.I very seldom reply to genetic questions because once I think I have things straight someone else knows diffrent and my learning curve goes right over the wall.

    I basically want to know if the instructions are clear, and would it provide the answer to a lot of the genetic questions of what do you get when you breed A to B. I know its only small at this point, but maybe if everyone tried say a male blackshoulder or split to blackshoulder bred to female single or double copy white eyed? Are the results understandable - I know that the key is located on another page, but it is only a basic spreadsheet, and I have very little to work with.
