In any particular litter, the percentages may not follow the mendelian prediction, because the mendelian ratio is a ratio of CHANCE.

However, if one were to repeatedly breed the same two animals, and keep track, one will find that the bias against the mendelian prediction in a particular litter, will be corrected in another litter.

Thus, in breeding albino mice (have alot of experience there) to heterozygous mice, one litter may have a larger number of albino offspring than predicted... but in TEN litters (the average reproductive life of a mouse) from the same parents, the ratio will be close to 50%.
