dilutes are the ones that confuse me, as far as i can tel there are three alleles that cotrol this gene, greywing clearwing and dilute (normal allele is dominant overall hence if the bird has one normal gene it will only be split for any of the others)
dilute is recessive whereas the other 2 are co-dominant right?
so in other words:
GW+D, GW+GW will give greywing birds
CW+D, CW+CW will give clearwings
N+N, N+D, N+CW, N+GW = normal bird split for respective mutation
D+D will give dilutes
GW + CW will give full body greywings?
this is what i gathered anyways a bit confusing, so yh you cant have dilute clearwings, but clearwing cuses a dilution of colours anyway right?
