Frank,
Hope you and the family had a great Christmas.

I agree that current genes mixed with unknown, or even known genes can produce new or currently unkown phenotypes. That is one of the fun things when we Frankenstein genetic mutations together. One never knows what lining up genes can accomplish.

With the condas, it is pretty much straight forward or so it has been thus far. Low expression conda bred to low expression conda will produce totally patternless supers, the same as high expression condas do. Low expression condas bred to normal will still produce high expression condas. The level of expression has no bearing on the expression of offspring. It is a really cool gene to work with.

If you breed super to super, your entire clutch will be supers. Conda to super conda will produce a half clutch of condas and a half clutch of supers. Super to normal produces all condas. Conda to normal = half normal, half conda.

You wrote....
"I think Co dom genes is a very normal path of normal phenotypic expression. In most cases its how all couplings work."

That is typical of polygenic traits, not co-dominance. The thing is, simple Mendelian genetics like recessive, co-dominant, incomplete dominant and dominant are set in stone because 2 sets of the gene is needed to show the full genetic mutation. The outcome of such pairings can also be reliably predicted on a punnett square. Polygenic traits on the other hand need to have several genes line up in order to express a certain look and is much more random, variable, and unpredictable.
