Re: Hybrid Vigor

Adam, yes I got the diagram from a booklet written by Hollander. The booklet is called "Project on Genetics". What is strange is that Hollander first talks about a term that Charles Darwin coined "Reversion" to the wild type. So is it correct to say that the original Belgian hom...

Is flecking affected by the pattern?

With an ash red cock carrying the blue base color: Is the blue flecking the same on all patterns? (1) Barless, (2) Bar, (3) Check (4) Dark Check?

Mark from Virginia

I would like to introduce myself. I am Mark from Virginia, USA. I am a member of the RVA racing club. I enjoy watching Adam Archer's YouTube video about pigeon genetics. I am hoping to learn more about pigeon genetics, so I can one day breed a fast smart pigeon.
