Gamecock Breeding Record – Binary Numbers Gamecock Markings

In the articles,

the use of binary numbers was introduced for:

  • ease of recall
  • completeness of possible marking combinations

The standard marking combinations turned out to be 64 markings.

To increase numbers of markings from the standard combinations, the “slit foot web” and “punch foot web” were introduced along with “slit nose” and “remove nose”.

The extended marking combinations turned out to be AT LEAST 128 markings.

LEGEND

  • 10-00-00 = RN – Right Nose
  • 01-00-00 = LN – Left Nose
  • 00-10-00 = RO – Right Out Web
  • 00-01-00 = RI – Right In Web
  • 00-00-10 = LI – Left In Web
  • 00-00-01 = LO – Left Out Web
  • DN = RNLN
  • DR = RORI
  • DL = LILO

The decimal equivalent of the binary equivalent of a particular marking can be used as the mating pen number.

  • RNRILO is binary 100101 is decimal 37.
    • Or, mating pen # 37 offsprings are marked with RNRILO.
  • ROLI is binary 001010 is decimal 10.
    • Or, mating pen # 10 offsprings are marked with ROLI.
