Hi David,
Actually, I wanted to thank you earlier but I was too busy, reading - guess what :wink:
I received the book a while ago. And it is absolutely fantastic :thumbs:
Thank you and Sigi for such a good work.

Ihave blackdottes book and have had for a few months now, it is so interesting and I find myself reading and re-reading pages...especially if things don't sink in the first time. I am still having trouble understanding some things and I really hope I'm not the only one who just doesn't get it :oops: ...I am having trouble understanding the genetic makeup of colours listed from p163 onwards. Underneath each colour it has the genetic make-up and in some cases 2 or three different lines of all this genetic makeup...are each of these lines different ways of creating the colour and if so which is the father/mother? Or is each line all the genes a bird must have to be that colour and if so, then how do you go about selecting certain colours with which to get the colour? I'm not sure if that makes sense or not...I'm just struggling a bit :oops: :oops: :?

Hi Tash,
What a bird looks like is its phenotype, its genetic composition is its genotype.
Some phenotypes can be made using different genotypes.
Thus a single laced bird can be made using
eb/eb Pg/Pg Co/Co Ml/Ml
or
ER/ER Pg/Pg Db/Db Ml/Ml
Does that help? If not PM me
David

It's the different ways you can get that colour. Buff can be eb or eWh, just a different genetic path for the same colour.

My DH work for the Brisbane Council Library, he refuse to let me buy any book because he said, there is no book he can't get :roll: and he will order any book in for me :D .. I just send him an email to his work and ask him to order some of this great book in for the library so I can get a fix too, can't wait for that to happen.. :wink: ...

This is a good idea, you can approach your local council or school library & request the book, if it is outside your budget.
All the information they require is in the thread, or you can contact me

Hi All,
I am down to the last 20 copies. After these have gone I will not be able to get any more, and then anyone wanting a copy will have to get it from a book supplier at a recommended purchase price of $126 plus postage from Holland. My price is still $85 which includes registered postage in Australia,$100 to NZ. So if you were thinking of buying one you know what to do.
David
