Can anyone tell me how the inheritance works with Phaeo. Is it dominant, recessive or what.
I was given a white Phaeo cock late in the season, and paired it to a self Harlequin hen and they have produced 4 young. Two are self fawn looking birds (Brown) one is self fawn looking with Phaeo looking wings like the cock. The other is a dark bird with a grey-ish underbelly like a white ground with no yellow, just black and brown feathers. Is Phaeo sex linked and will these young be carriers of Phaeo.
Having never kept Phaeo before, I'm curious as to how it's transferred.
