PEAFOWL GENETICS....PAGE 2

PIED
The pied gene 'P' is a mutation of the pattern gene 'B', more commonly known as the India blue.
'P' is an allele (opposite) of the white mutation.
Just as the black shoulder is an allele, (BB vs. bb) so is the pied gene opposite to white.
blue is opposite to black shoulder (BB vs. bb)
white is opposite to pied. (TT vs. PP)
So, are you totally confused? Understandably so...
Let's go figure it out.


First clue= TP = pied
Pied X Pied
TP X TP
GENOTYPE = 25%TT 50%TP 25%PP
PHENOTYPE=
TT= white TP= Pied PP= dark pied
So, what's this PP thing you say?
PP, dark pied will look like BT, india blue
with the white flight feathers or throat patch.
So, if you raise both, you'd better tag these.
They will become important down the page.

PHENOTYPE=

There's that PP again.
So what are they good for?
We'll show you below.

Pied X White

GENOTYPE= 100% TP
PHENOTYPE= 100% Pied
THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE GOOD FOR!

PIEDS AND BLACK SHOULDERS
These are a bit more complicated since we are dealing with 2 Id genes (P and T) the India blue
which is carried as a pattern gene (I) and as a color gene (B) and also recessive bb (black shoulder)
But, once you've got one, you indeed have something special.
TB-------PB
India blue Pied X Black Shoulder
BBTP X bb
GENOTYPE= 50%TIBb 50%PIBb
PHENOTYPE=
TIBb= India blue w/white f.f.
PIBb= india blue
TIBb=1 white gene(T), 1 blue pattern gene (I), 1
blue color gene (B) and one b.s. gene (b)
PIBb= 1 Pied, 1 blue pattern, 1 blue color, 1 b.s.
All these will look india blue

Next, we will mate birds from that first mating. Yes, we are going to mate brother and sister.
There are 3 things we can do here. TIBb X TIBb--PIBb X PIBb--TIBb X PIBb

2-PIbb- black shoulder

In all of the above matings, it doesn't matter which color is male or which color is female.
The formulas work either way.
There are hundreds of additional crosses you could do with all of the birds produced above.
Play around, and see what you can create.
