Linkage between pea comb and melanotic plumage loci in chickens



Linkage between pea comb and melanotic plumage loci in chickens



Poultry Science 65(10): 1859-1862



Segregation for pea vs. single comb and blue vs. brown egg shells were found to have persisted in a closed domestic fowl population for about 20 generations. Most pea-combed birds had wheaten plumage, and single-combed birds were black; recombinants had only rarely been seen, indicating close linkage between the comb and plumage loci. The population appeared to be homozygous for an E locus wheaten allele, probably ey.
