Hey Frank,
Co-dominance is pretty cut and dry like recessive genes and not something that is normally found in nature. In fact, co-dominance seems to occur less than recessives do. At least that's how it is in captive collections thus far.

Here are a few definitons of co-dominance.

[b]A condition in which the alleles of a gene pair in a heterozygote are fully expressed thereby resulting in offspring with a phenotype that is neither dominant nor recessive.

Genetics. of or relating to two different alleles that are fully expressed in a heterozygous individual.

A heterozygous condition in which both alleles at a gene locus are fully expressed in the phenotype.

(genetics) (of genes) having both alleles expressed equally in the phenotype of the organism[/b]

As you can see from the definitions, it is not just a random mixing of phenotypes that brings about co-dominance. It is a rather specific genetic event.
