You have to remember Creamers are small and those Toads are huge, 1/2 Dixie Rainbow 1/2 CX.
Mr. Porter hasnt got back to me yet. I need to find out how to get him on facebook... Oh mother!
You my dear sound like the perfect boy.. Keep that young spirit as long as you can..
Oops wrong thread!
I can send you the link, you just send a request to his page. He is kind of strict though, he only wants Genetics discussed on there.
There is also a heritage turkey FB page. BUT it is over run with old people!
I dont want him to get mad at me.... But how else will I get my question answered!! I choose........(dramatic pause)......... The link!
It will! They are going fast right now!
Short answer he did not inherit barring . Long answer the hen was not barred and Bert has 1 barring gene . Hens can only have 1 barring gene ( hemizygous ) . In chickens it is the female that determines the sex . In humans it is XY or XX . In chickens I think they use ZW not sure which letter is the double . This makes your head hurt just thinking about it .
They all had Dixie Rainbows for mothers, which I assume means they could be anything. I cannot be sure they had the same Mothers or not, Bert Sr was there Daddy. I had 3 rainbows for Mommies.
I knew the females controlled the sex, and about the WZ. I still find it funny they did not all turn out barred or white and orange. They are nice birds though huge bodies and big thighs! I a thigh man, I love big thighs!
wait until I finish my new book...
