The First Edition is now sold out World wide, and so is out of print.
A Second Edition is being considered.
If anyone has any suggestions please PM me.
I would like to thank you all for the support you have all provided

Yes Blackdotte, what Ruff said - I'll gladly buy a second edition too. Another book project that I think will be worthwhile is an Australian Standards colour guide for all breeds, based on the second part of your genetics book - I often page through your colour guide and wonder what a different breed would look like in a specific colour (although a work like that would be enormous and expensive, I think) - with the genetic make-up included of course, as you did in your genetics book.

Your book is the one I probably have read the most times, beginning to end, and repetitively, in the short time I had it. Good job.

Good evening all, I need some assistance understanding a diagram in "Genetics of Chicken Colours", p. 18. The mating of the CB line on the left side of the page would result in a S/S ar/ar cockerel, and the mating of the "pure breeding phenotypical Yellow duckwing based on S would result in a S/- Ar+/Ar+ pullet. Now here comes my problem it seems that the mating of these two, as displayed in the centre of the diagram, would result, according to how I interpret the diagram, in the 1:2:1 ratio genotype as written directly above, but surely mating would result in 100% S/S or S/- Ar+/ar genotype?
Any assistance appreciated, mark

Hi All,
Sorry it is sold out world wide. No publisher is interested in financing a Second Edition , at this time anyway. A 'Print on Demand' copy should be available by contacting info@tuinvee.nl

unbelievable about publishers. i see the rubbish that is being put out in the local book shops, only suitable for preschoolers being read to by their parents. but that is the level of intellegence of most people these days. where is the voice of people that do not want to be put in the class of a preschooler?

seems if your book is not wanted mine will never be.

If you have an IQ over 100 then you are in the minority it seems which is why I rarely turn on the TV anymore. Do not get me started on bookshops. Ok there are some good books still comming out ... but what a disgrace that the biggest book store in Nowra did not even have Douglas Adams, none of his books, and the library was tossing his books out. Then there is the art section..... oh boy 2 shelves of learn to draw baby animals by number type books. The poultry books all basic 'starter' books nothing for anyone past novice. Why not?

Hi David,

Congratulations on the sellout of the first print, lets hope as the worldwide economy picks up some one will grab hold of this great book and make it available to the many other interested people.

Cheers

Christian

p.153, last column in 'lav' row, "Verandert zwart in parelgrijs, rood in buff en orangjerood in strokleur" should be something like, "Changes in black, red, buff in pearl and orangjerood in straw color". Translator didn't like 'orangjerood', but 'orangje' means 'orange'. top read, thanks again, mark
