>>2 wc normals were bred together, the female laid 20 eggs, 13 hatched, 2 were sable(1.1). The next season I bred the boy sable back to his mom & about half of the eggs that made it were sable. The following year I bred the 2 sables together & 100% of the hatchlings were visual sables, & that year I also bred the boy sable to a couple of the 1st 2 sable's normal looking clutch mates from the wc breeding & one of those females produced sables, one did not. This year I hatched a couple sables from a het to het breeding. As far as I have known this is the best & easiest way to prove if a color morph is recessive. To me it made more since to inbreed to figure it out. If I'm not as smart as I think I am & the sables somehow turn out to not be recessive, not only will I feel like an idiot, but I'll owe a few of you a big apology & some cash/snakes, & it will be made right. Can anyone tell me an example of a trait that acts like its recessive when animals are inbred, but it really isn't?

I don't feel like reading all the bs previous post.

I do work with the project and personally think it's one of the best recessive projects out there.
