Right on, thats some good information there. And very interesting too.

If stripe were a dominant trait, then you would expect always to get 50% stripes from a stripeXnormal and 25% normal/75% stripe when stripeXstripe. I dont think this is what we see though (???)

If stripe were co-dom, then you would expect that a normalXstripe would also get you 50% stripes. But, breed whatever stripe is co-dom with to a stripe and you will get either 100% of the offspring with a third pattern thats different from both parents (if the parents were heterozygous for the co-dom trait), or, 25% normal, 25% stripe, 25% whatever the other pattern is, and 25% the third pattern.

If stripe were incomplete dominant, then you would expect normalXstripe to be 50% stripe, while a stripeXstripe would get you 25% normal, 25% "super", and 25% stripe. But, what that super looks like is not clear, maybe a typical ruffie look?

My educated but totally wild a$$ guess right now is that stripe and tiger are two co-dom traits since we can separate them and breed them true (at least so far). That means when breed together you should get stripes, normals, tigers, and something else, that may be the ruffie look. If tiger is also a variable trait then you can get really tiger looking animals and not-so-much tiger looking animals.

Of course, if breeding an outcrossed stripe (25% at least) to a normal gets you tigers then what I wrote above is wrong so I never wrote it and will deny it to my grave!
