Not defending him, I don't know him or about him. But its common for the originator of a trait to be the last to know. As there is a tendency to work within the genetic line. To him and his combinations, it may have been dominate occurring, but not dominate genetically. If that makes any sense. Lets see, most breeders have a line, they start and produce offspring, they take the next step and breed the offspring, as you say the nicest ones. Then again, at some point that whole line is related and refined. So breeding a third generation back to a first generation will still produce reds. Except when you out cross to an unrelated line. Then its polygenic. Again, I am only attempting to figure out how folks are going about this.
I do have a question Gregg, whats your opinion on what I mention to Will. When reds are not a normal phenotype on my site, and in fact a rarity. They most likely are not polygenic?
