Can I please ask a question that may seem silly to some of the more experienced chook people?

Why would someone be dubbing a chook?

:thanks:


Dubbing no longer a topic for discussion :wink:

Hi- another question I can't find the answer to by searching- what does "RIR" stand for? Something or other recessive I'm guessing?

Any Other Recognised Colour ie a colour that appears in the standard for that breed but there arent enough to make up a class by itself so combining them.

Also what does sex-linked mean?

At hatching the chicks down are different colour for male and female. As against dimorphous, the males and females are totally different to look at but start off the same as chicks ie Salmon Faverolles. Its only as they feather up that the two colours become distinct

and...Self White? (and is there any Other White)?

The bird is totally white. Say Polish, you have white crested black (black bird with a white crest), white crested blue, self white, self black, self blue. Not to be confused with Recessive white or Dominant White in genetic terms
