Is Patton yellow factored? I have been looking at a lot of litters and they are all black. I did see one litter out of a yellow female that they expected blacks and yellows. I have seen another litter out of a yellow female that they only expect black. I though he was yellow factored, can someone clear this up for me, please?

Thanks,
Tom

I don't mean to hi jack the thread, but I have another question. If the stud is a tri factored black and the bitch only carries the yellow gene, then what colors can I expect?

Assuming that both are black, you should get 75% black pups, 25% yellow pups. Some pups can have the chocolate factor, some can have the yellow, and some can have both. Some of the yellows could carry chocolate also. Of course there is no exact science to this, it is all approximate. I had a yellow female that I bred to a black male(tri factored), the first litter was 7 yellows and 2 blacks, the second litter was the exact opposite, 7 blacks and 2 yellow. I also know of a yellow female that was bred to a black(yellow factored) male and happened to have all black pups. The same male bred to another yellow female produced an almost all yellow litter, I think 2 were black. You just never know.

If she's chocolate, you COULD have all three colors.

Mother Nature totally flunked statistics! I just got 6 yellow and 4 blacks out of a Black bitch that was tri colored x a Black Male that carried only yella. So what should have been 75% black litter was 60% yellow instead!

I'm suprised no one mentioned this can't happen if bred to Patton no matter what the color is.

I found the website and e-mailed the owners this information. I'll wait and see if he replies or not.
