Hi,

Quick question in order to verify something...

If neither mum or dad have visable cinnamon..
it's up to dad to be "split/part" cinnamon. (invisible cinnamon) otherwise there wil not be a cinnamon baby..
true or false?

If neither mum or dad have visable cinnamon,
a baby boy can not be "split/part" cinnamon. (invisible cinnamon)
true or false?

Greetings,
Debbie

Cinnamon is sex linked. Hens is they carry the gene MUST show it, you can not get a hen carrying it, the only exception I can think of would be in the case of double factor spangles, Nev or Tonic can probably clear that up though.

Your are right in thinking **** birds can carrying it though, a **** bird can either show it or be split for it meaning he can produce cinnamon offspring but is not a visual cinnamon himself.

Now if you pair a split **** or a visual **** to a normal hen you have a chance of cinnamons but ANY cinnamon bird from that pairing will be a hen. There is a chance that **** birds from this pairing will be split for cinnamon but not all are guaranteed to be split for it.
If you pair a cinnamon hen to a normal **** bird that is not split you will not get cinnamons, however the **** birds from this pairing will be split for cinnamon.

In order to get **** birds that show cinnamon you must pair a cinnamon hen either to a cinnamon **** or a **** split for cinnamon.

I hope this helps, and please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

That's is correct, you can only get a visible cinnamon if the **** has genes for cinnamon. Even if the hen is cinnamon there won't be any visible cinnamon chicks unless the **** also has the gene

Not quite correct.
If the father has genes for cinnamon he could pass these on to some of his sons in a split form.

Cinnamon can be masked by a double factor spangle. Also it is often hard to see on some greywings, dilutes & pieds
