    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!

    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...
