    does anyone know of any reference material on what genes are dominate and what ones are recessive. And what those genes do?

    Quote:It is best to post a specific question about a specific cross. When you post a question, you must include the breed and variety in the question. It is important to include which is the male and which is the female.

    For example, if I cross a male dark brahma and a female partridge rock, what will be the phenotype of the adult offspring. Phenotype- means what does the organism look like


    If you want to know about a specific trait ask a question about the trait and include the breed and variety.

    Sorry if i had a plan I would discuss certain crosses. The only crosses I am interested in knowing about right now are Araucana over White leghorn and RiR over Sussex. But I am in the really early stages of coming up with a plan so i am in the collect data phase. mljohnson05 that was perfect thank you. from that I can come up with the traits I am looking for then find the breeds that have the genes I want in my flock thank you.
