The Genetics of the Old English Game Bantam - Shelton

II have ordered a copy from Amazon as it was recommended to me on another website where I am a member. I've found that these types of books tend to have short runs and soon go out of publication, so I've bought a copy quickly. It has only recently become available. It's written by Timothy L. Shelton. I don't breed OEG, but the principles will apply to all breeds. The pictures on the front cover look suspiciously like those generated by the familiar 'calculator'.

It is purely about the genetics. There are no photos, just some diagrams. I'll put a couple of page shots here to show you what it's like.

It's not a coffee table book - it's a reference book that covers the names and the genetics of various OEG types and the gamefowl names of the colours. It's a fairly easy read, I think, if you're into that type of thing. I would still buy it as a reference but it is nothing like the quality of the Genetics of Chicken Colours for instance. That is a far better publication. It just depends what you're after in a book. This book was useful in that it gave gamefowl names for colours which are different to the terms usually used in genetics other genetics books.
