Hi all,

I have an intersting subject...
All types of fallows, are a recessive gene and not sex linked..

I was searching for Fallows in my country, and I was able to find 3...

One of these fallows, as the picture below shows is mated to a recessive pied.



What do you expect the offspring will be?

for the record, the recessive pied is not split for anything, and I myself rised his grandfathers...

Anyway, the offspring was 4 chicks, all of them are fallows!!
This result was total unexpected.

What do you think is the reason behind this? is the Fallow gene dominant to the Recessive pied gene?!

I shall show you pictures of the offspring tomorrow...

Moreover, the above female is currently mated to a Dark eyed clear (dark eyed clear are a combination between recessive pied and clearflight pied) and they have 3 chicks, one of them is a red eye, and this may further indicate the dominance of the fallow over the recessive pied gene..

Your thoughts and comments are appreciated..:D

I think your opaline recessive pied must be split for fallow. A recessive gene can be passed down for countless generations without showing
