Hey! I'm doing a 4-H presentation on unique chicken feather genetics, and have a couple questions about Silkies and Naked Necks. One part of my presentation is on Silkie feathering (the "hookless" feathering, not just the breed), however I haven't had enough experience with silkies to know much about the genetics involved in crossbreeding them. The naked neck genetics I'm unsure of, involving the bowties and breeding with normal-necked birds. I just put a rough draft of what I would initially think of if breeding naked necks. Completely open to alteration suggestions. Here is what I am assuming with genetics involved in each, and what I have observed in the past. Anyone have something to add or change to either? Punnett squares would be helpful as well. •Silkie + Silkie = 100% Silkie •Silkie + Smooth = 100% Smooth (These birds now carry the Silkie gene.) •Silkie + Smooth (w/ Silkie Gene) = 50% Silkie, 50% Smooth (w/ Silkie gene) •Naked + Naked = 100% Naked Neck (Two Copies of Gene) •Naked + Normal OR Bowtie + Bowtie = 100% Bowtie (One copy of Gene) •Bowtie + Normal = 50% Bowtie, 50% Normal Thanks in advance for any input!
