Good day!

I'm starting to slowly understand chicken genetics (hopefully) hahaha. They're some genes that I can't quite fully grasp.

These are

A. Color distribution genes
birchen (ER)
brown (eb)

C. Color restricting genes
Columbian (Co)
Dark Brown (Db)
Mahogany (Mh)
Dilute (Di)
Melanotic (Ml)

I hope someone could explain this as simple as possible.

Thanks! laugh

Takes a book or a classroom for me. I use a number of books, the easiest for some answers is: GENETICS OF CHICKEN COLOURS the BASICS by Sigrid van Dort--in Dutch Language or English translation, by Sigi, with David Hancox. Expensive, worth it. From the US, can order via Jerry Schexnayder, jerschex@aol.com There is a website: www.chickencolours.com that gives the list of her books available in Euros--and top of the list is Jerry, in US,----- write to him. Check availability from Australian site on that page, save a lot in Postage (or search www.australianpoultryforum.com) Good luck

Actually I ordered Sigi's book (Thanks Sigi! Very Nice!). I think I'm the first person in the Philippines to have it hahaha.

It has helped a lot but I still need simplification direct from the experts wink.

I hope you can help

Thanks!
