Default Genetic Quiz - Answers & New Questions - Week 8

Here are the first 5 questions in a genetic quiz. See how many questions you can answer. I will post the answers and another set of questions in a few days. When you have answered I will PM the answers to you. It doesn't matter if you answer "Don't know" to some of the questions. It is not a competition, just a bit of fun



1/ If a pair of normal budgies produced an albino chick which parent did the albino gene come from?

2/ If a lutino hen was mated to a blue cock: What colour would the chicks be if neither bird was split for anything?

3/ Can 2 normal birds produce a spangle chick?

4/ Is it possible for the mother of a lutino cock to be a normal?

5/ If 2 dominant pieds were mated together would any of the chicks be normals?

I'll have a go

1. Cock.... Hens can't be split for Albino
2. Normal/Lutino Cocks
Normal Hens
3. No, Spangle is Dominant
4. No
5. Assuming they are both SF Dominant Pied.... Some would be normal

1 - Male cause its X-chromosone
2 - Blue I think
3 - No I think. I think you have to have at least one spangle
4 - Yes it is possibe
5 - No I think

I dont know about any of these answers as I'm just beginning to study genetics, but I can't wait to see how well (or not so well) i did

Great thread Nev! I don't know a lot , but I'll give it a shot.

1/ If a pair of normal budgies produced an albino chick which parent did the albino gene come from?
Male

2/ If a lutino hen was mated to a blue cock: What colour would the chicks be if neither bird was split for anything?
Blue

3/ Can 2 normal birds produce a spangle chick?
I don't think so.

4/ Is it possible for the mother of a lutino cock to be a normal?
not sure on this one, maybe if she was split?

5/ If 2 dominant pieds were mated together would any of the chicks be normals?
Not sure.

This is fun and a great way for us to learn more about mutations. I look forward to the correct answers as well as the next set of questions.

OK, i seriously have hardly any idea, I've researched a little bit on this before.. here goes

1/ If a pair of normal budgies produced an albino chick which parent did the albino gene come from?
I think females can't split for albino... so I'm going to say male, also from experience this make sense.

2/ If a lutino hen was mated to a blue cock: What colour would the chicks be if neither bird was split for anything?
Umm... I'm going to assume blue is dominate over the Lutino, blue?
Because when Sunny (my lutino hen) had a clutch with one of my blue males, the chicks were all blue.

3/ Can 2 normal birds produce a spangle chick?
No idea

4/ Is it possible for the mother of a lutino cock to be a normal?
No idea

5/ If 2 dominant pieds were mated together would any of the chicks be normals?
No idea

1/ If a pair of normal budgies produced an albino chick which parent did the albino gene come from? Male would be split for Albino Since Females can't be split to it because its a sex linked gene

2/ If a lutino hen was mated to a blue cock: What colour would the chicks be if neither bird was split for anything? Yellow Base is Dominate and Blue base is recessive so i want to say Lutino females, along with some blue , any male (blue) would be split for Lutino

3/ Can 2 normal birds produce a spangle chick? Yes if one is split to spangle - Not even sure if thats possiable lol

4/ Is it possible for the mother of a lutino cock to be a normal? no Lutino is sex linked and the mother would have to be visual to get males

5/ If 2 dominant pieds were mated together would any of the chicks be normals? Yes You'd get some pieds and some normals and some double factor Dominant pieds - not 100% sure on that answer lol
