: Can anyone explain why an albino bred to a het produces 75%
: albino when Mendelian genetics shows that the ratio should be 50% albino?
>>>it's all in the odds...
it is a 50% chance PER EGG........
you could get 50/75/20% albinos...all in the odds...
(know a guy who one time got 11 lavender out of 16 eggs from het to het that he didn't know were hets...)....his odds went back to 4 lavs the next year...and he got 0 this year....
all luck....good or bad....
