    How does genetics affect issues other than color? Say, egg size or laying ability?
    Doe the female or male determine these factors, or is it unpredictable? Lets say, i have a Jersey Giant hen and a Cochin rooster...can egg size and laying frequency be determined? Egg color?
    Inquiring minds want to know! Or, at least this mind.
