If I could spell hideous I would say that's how I went...

 

YOU'RE KIDDING ME!?!?!?! okay Hideous(sp?) is the understatement of the year... For the "True or False" I gave my answer then responded in contradiction to my response!!! What a moron!!

 

I got the sex-linked, got the 3 Dominant and 3 Recesive... I'm stupid.

 

I think I got 3! Shoot me now!!!

All right but I have issue with question 9. Also some of the varieties I plut in for question 6 are not listed but I know I'm right cause I bred all but one of them.

 

Question 9. I did stuff up putting in ...... but then you get that with only 3-4 hours sleep a night over the past week. One of the varieties they list I consider a recessive given the newer information available on the subject. Aslo with the Dominant ...... sorry but I don't accept that as a double factor form is a variation not a complete change same with the ........ double factor and the ...........double factor.......... They are still ...... and .......... it is only the double factor form of ............ that is a complete change from the single factor form.

 

Gee looks like my post is a bit of a quiz in its self. Trying not to give away answers I think I've created a puzzle. :wub: Whose gonna try and work that lot out? Anyone. :o

Haha I got a bit tripped up on that one too. There are a few mutations that change the appearance of the bird in double factor form, but some mutations dont do it as strikingly and obviously as others. So i included all I could think of and only the most striking ones were mentioned in the answer form. Edited by Dean_NZ
