    Does anyone have these? Has anyone seen one in person? I have only seen a couple references to them.

    Thanks

    Are you guys snowed in and making up chicken breeds for entertainment?

    (I've got a mutt dog that I tell people is a Ozark Mountain Squirrel Hound)

    And, yes, I'm snowed in. [​IMG]

    Quote:It's an uncommon allele of silver. NOT "made-up." You can find references to it in poultry genetics literature.

    Dang, I was hoping it was made up. Could I interest anybody in the last of the Ozark Mountain Squirrel Hounds? (Looks like a smallish Bernese Mountain Dog)

    Quote:Would you expound on it being an allele of silver? Does that mean a bird could be gold, silver or PED? Thus making it also sex linked? I have emailed the man who has a website about them a couple times with no response.

    Oops, I stand corrected. It is pk; I was confusing it with S^al-s.

    There are four s-alleles: S, S^al-s, s+ & s^al
