An Introduction to Form and Feathering of the Domestic Fowl
by: Reeder, Brian

What is a Gene? When we think of the definition of the word gene, we think of discrete units of DNA that have a very specific purpose. These units are the basis of heredity in living organisms. Genes are generally located on DNA, a chain made of similar but subtly different nucleotides abbreviated as A, C, G, and T. DNA never leaves the nucleus of the cell where it serves as a type of reference book that is used to provide information on how to make whatever a cell needs or uses. Like a reference book that cannot leave the library, a copy must be made. The copy is called RNA. ... Of the generally described poultry genes, a great many do appear to be very straightforward. This is especially true of many of the autosomal recessives that we see in color and form in fowl. Of the dominant genes described, some seem to be simple, yet others appear to be multi-factoral and variable with modification from any possible background factor(s). Complex gene traits that have no clear dominance or recessive nature, such as eggshell color or earlobe color, seem to be difficult to describe in any Mendelian fashion. Their genetic basis is difficult to hypothesize based upon a strictly Mendelian approach. They are considered quantitative, meaning that the extremes seem to be arrived at through a cumulative effect rather than through the usual Mendelian segregation of extremes of phenotype expression. 112 pgs.
