Aaron,

The term F1 refers to the offspring of a test cross between two pure bred individuals. I am actually using the term incorrectly (as are the rest of the alterna breeders). We are using the term to represent the first generation of captive produced animals. Many people count offspring as "F1s" if either parent is wc. If I call something a "F1", then both parents are wc. I will just label the others "wc x F1" or whatever. A true F2 is a line bred animal from sibling F1 animals and I do not think that is what many people are producing. Some of you genetics experts step in here and correct me if I am wrong or am doing a poor job of explaining. I am on vacation and my wife is giving me that "look" to get off of the computer so I cut this a little short.

Bryan
