A world of Genetics vs. Real World Experience
We all know the stats from the genetics school book on how color is inherited Yellow x Black (yellow carrier) = 50% Black-%50 Yellow, Brown x Black (brown carrier)= 50%-50%. Black(yellow carrier)x Black (yellow carrier) = 75% black, 25% yellow. Simple right? Same with the Chocolates. We'll as I've been watching a few litters this year, toying with the idea of trying a new color, but not yet insane enough to eliminate a black parent completely ;). I've found they are nowhere close to schoolbook. So I thought it might be fun to get some real world stats based on color breeding from personal experience, see if we can get them to balance out to 50%.
So here goes this year so far
Yellow x black ( Y carrier) = 8 black 3 yellow
Chocolate x black (coco carrier) = 5 black 1 chocolate
Black(Y carrier) x black (y-carrier) = 7 black
So far all signs pointing to me staying with black ;)
