Dan,
Jags are an example and so are my tigers.

I acquired 2 normal females and 1 normal male from a jag to het albino clutch. They are completely normal looking. I bred the male to the 2 females and got about half a clutch of jags in each clutch 2 of them being albino. Jag to jag makes all jags. However, when you breed Jag to an unrelated normal, you also get jags so that gene being recessive is automatically ruled out.

I bred 2 normal from a tiger clutch together and go about half tigers. I have also outcrossed my tigers and get about half a clutch of tigers from tiger to unrelated normal. And when I breed tiger to tiger, I get 100% tigers. I have done this consistently for 3 seasons and I know for sure that the tiger gene is not a recessive.

That is 2 examples just from my own personal projects. I am sure we can dig one or two more up if we look hard enough.

No doubt your sables are amazing, I love the look of them, and if they are reliably reproduced, no matter how the gene is passed, they will be of great value as a morph enhancing morph. I just do not feel enough has been done with them to say either way how the genetics are working for sure.
