Mendelian Inheritance and Classical Genetics

Repost Let us review on the basics of breeding…. Mendel’s Laws of Inheritance Law of Dominance  Some alleles are dominant while others are recessive; an organism with at least one dominant allele will display the effect of the dominant allele. Law of Segregation  During gamete formation, the alleles for each gene segregate from each other…

Blood Percentages of Common Inbreeding Patterns

Blood Percentage is related to Coefficient of Relationship (COR) and Coefficient of Inbreeding (COI). Both COR and COI are measure of purity or homogeneity of a mating. While Blood Percentage is typically used by beginners in placed of COR and COI. Without proper selection, the following will be irrelevant: Coefficient of Relationship Coefficient of Inbreeding Blood…

Gamecock Breeding Record – Binary Numbers Gamecock Markings

In the articles, Gamecock Breeding Record – Complete Markings Sheets Gamecock Breeding Record – Complete Markings Matrix 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…

Understanding and Quality Control of Gameness

Gameness is also an observed trait (phenotype) of gamecock chickens aside from being inherited (genotype). Male gamecock chickens are game or fight to the death from 5-7 months old. But a 10-day old gamecock chick of any gender might also fight to death for no apparent reason. As a start, Phenotype = Genotype + Environment…

How To Determine Gamecock Breed Thru Earlobe Color Genetics?

The earlobe color, typically, is a genetic marker for gamecock breeds. Most gamecock breeds and any ordinary chicken breeds have a known earlobe characteristics standard. Most of the new gamecock breeds are crosses of the old breeds. Thus, familiarize old gamecock breeds’ characteristics as well as ordinary chicken breeds. This will very helpful in determining…

How To Determine Gamecock Breed Thru Egg Color Genetics?

Gamecock strains or subspecies of chicken are crosses from years ago. Obviously gamecocks are not bred according to any poultry association’s Standard of Perfection.
