Expected Pigeon Breeding Results
by Frank Mosca
After the first eight rows, I'm going back to fancier language.  I simply want folks to be aware that homozygous (homo), heterzygous (hetero), and hemizygous (hemi) are easy to use and consider and sometimes do make things easier.  In fancier language, homo would be "pure for", hetero is often said to be "carrying",  hemi has no real fancier term, but it simply means that the hen, at least for sex-linked factors only carries one allele at all times.  NOT everything in the hen is hemizygous, only those things on her sex-chromosome.
