You can find out the genes of your chickens by answering question by question, one trait at a time.



Kip Calculator - Chicken Calculator
The original basic Chicken Calculator with a lot of hints and visual examples about how the genes work. Only colorgenes.
This one is translated into the languages below. When you get the principle of the calculator try the new chicken calculator
with a lot more features and genes, which you can add yourself on the fly!


Chicken Composer Calculator
Includes "Browse" feature! When changing groundcolor or patterncolor, the effect on all the different patterns is immediately shown.
It is best used as a switchboard to other calculators, though it is a fully functional calculator.


Beta-version Chicken Crossing-Over Calculator
This module is a bit costly and complex for the novice because all Crossing-over combinations are considered/shown,
even the ones without any noticable effect. Includes "Explain Phenotype" functionality.


The Chicken Calculator is extendable now !!! Go to Plug-in version. | Go to Wildcard version (Radiobutton layout)

French version: Calculateur de Poule

Italiano: Calcolatore di Polli

Deutsche Fassung: Hühner Kalkulator

Nederlandse versie: Kip Calculator

Go to basics/overview chicken genetics
Not covered: autosomal red See Demo, some recessive melanizers, the unknown black inhibitors in the Buff phenotype (tail and wings).
Simplified/omitted: crossing with extended black often causes persistent silver/gold leakage in hackle and saddle of cockerels.
For generations! Probably due to lack of recessive melanizers.

Intro | Basisstof erfelijkheid | Erfelijkheid van Kippenkleuren | Kippengenen | Andere diersoorten calculators

English intro | Basics of genetics | Genetics of Chickencolors | Chicken genes | Other species calculators

Kies een haan en een hen en kruisen maar.
Je kunt handmatig alle genen in stellen of een algemene kleur kiezen (knop "Show examples", is een beetje traag).
Ook kun je via deze webpagina of via het luxere Breedbook een kleur kiezen.
Geen idee wat die genen doen? Je kunt het effect ervan laten zien, of je kunt met de keuzelijstjes spelen (locus = gen, zie ook basiskennis).
Naast resulterende genotype en kleurbeschrijving heb ik geprobeerd om voor veel kleuren een schematisch plaatje erbij te plaatsen.
Voor de minder algemene kleuren is er slechts één plaatje voor beide geslachten. Laat je hierdoor niet verwarren, het geslacht staat erbij.
Je kunt kiezen voor onafhankelijke overerving of gekoppeld voor de patroongenen (zie de tabel met kippenpatronen oranje en rood).
Kies een of twee nakomelingen om mee verder te kruisen (zie opmerking hieronder over onfokzuiverheid).
Je kunt nu ook meerdere nakomelingen onthouden voor latere kruisingen. Terughalen met "Recall"-knop.
Niet geïnteresseerd in genotypes of doorkruisen? Verberg al die resultaten en laat alleen de kleurensamenvatting zien.
De berekening gebeurt op je eigen PC, niet op de webserver.
Als de dieren op te veel genen verschillen of onfokzuiver zijn dan kan de berekening erg lang gaan duren.
Afhankelijk van je webbrowser wordt dan herhaaldelijk gevraagd of je er mee door wilt gaan/ het script wilt stoppen. Kan geen kwaad.
Dit is een manier om de tijdspanne te vergroten zodat je minder vaak hoeft te klikken.
Programmeren is keuzes maken; neem daarom bij vragen zeker even contact met mij op via mijn website henk69.nl of via het Kippenforum
De kipcalculator kan in principe zonder internetverbinding functioneren. Plaatjes hier downloaden.
Laatste nieuws en updates hier @the-coop.org.

Tips:
Voor sommige patronen (pelling, dubbel en enkelvoudig gezoomd, lovering) is het gunstig om gekoppelde overerving te gebruiken.
De knop "Use linkage" wist echter een hoop instellingen.
Daarom kun je deze knop gebruiken om geselecteerde/opgespaarde dieren te wissen.
Het vinkje bij "Hide genotypes" kan een aantal zaken versnellen als je alleen in de kleurensamenvatting geïnteresseerd bent.
De grootte van de plaatjes kun je ook instellen voordat je een kruising uitvoert of de voorbeelden laat zien.
Er zijn vele hints beschikbaar. Zweef daartoe over knoppen, plaatjes, teksten.

Zeer goede Kippen Genetica website door Karen Hall (engelstalig)

Typische Zoogdier Vachtkleur Genetica

English: Choose the parents and do a testcross.
You can manually adjust all the genes or you can pick a common color (button "Show examples", is a bit slow).
Also you can pick the colors from a list via this webpage or via the high end Breedbook interface.
No idea what these genes do? You can visualize their effects by pushing a button, or alter the gene-lists (locus = gene, see basics).
Besides resulting genotypes and color descriptions I have tried to add a schematic picture for as many colors as possible.
For less common colors there is only one picture for both genders. Don't be fooled because the gender is indicated in the outcome description.
You can choose independant segregation of genes or choose strict linkage between the patterngenes (see table with chickenpatterns orange and red).
Pick one or two offspring to do a further crossing (see remark below about impure genotypes).
New feature: you can select one or more offspring for later crossings. Recall them with the "Recall"-button.
Not interested in all those genotypes or do further crossings? Just hide al those coarse results and only show color/gender summary.
The calculation is clientside, no risk of jamming the webserver.
If the animals differ on too much loci/genes (too much heterozygosity, impure genotype) then the calculation can be very CPU and time demanding.
Depending on your browser you will be repeatedly asked to stop or continue/ end the script. This is harmless, don't worry.
This is a workaround to increase your maximum script run time to delay that popup.
Software engineering is making choices; therefor contact me when you have questions or comments via my homepage henk69.nl or mail to "spmdmp at gmail.com" or visit the dutch Chickenboard
The Chicken calculator is able to function without internet connection. Pictures downloadable here.
Find the latest news and updates here @the-coop.org.

Tips:
For some patterns (autosomal barring, double and single lacing, spangling) it is favorable that you use linkage.
The button "Use linkage" however resets the calculator.
You can use this button (twice) to clean up the animals you selected for later crossings.
The checkbox "Hide genotypes" could speed things up if your only interested in the color summary.
The picturesize can be changed prior to calculations and "show"-features.
There are many hints available. Just hover over buttons or pictures.

Tip for hyperlinking to the flexible / self-built / extendable calculators:
After clicking these hyperlinks you see the url in the address field of your browser eg for the guinea fowl: http://kippenjungle.nl/Overzicht.htm#guincalculator
You are taken to a direct hyperlink to the calculator and some extra info about the species involved.
If you use this address (url) instead of the direct links to the calculator you always get to the latest version of the calculator.
New: replace the "#" character by "?run=" to get a direct link ! eg. http://kippenjungle.nl/Overzicht.htm?run=guincalculator
Warning: if you copy the direct url eg. http://kippenjungle.nl/kruisingFlex.html?data=...
you will NOT pick up the changes that I made since you made your hyperlink.
You can use the "wizard" link to adjust one of these flexible calculators, and add to favorites, etc...

Note for all calculators: missing pictures are welcome. Experts are also welcome for review.
Please report errors. Via Henk69.nl or mail to "spmdmp at gmail.com"
There is often a step-in version with colorlists and ALWAYS an advanced version with gene-lists (from there).
These tools are not meant as an endgoal for your genetic knowledge quest, more like a kick off.

Duif Calculator - Pigeon Calculator
English version Pigeon Calculator Advanced thanks to Dave Walters
Not covered in these versions: the many pied genes, gimpel/arch angel, almond-series, opals, icy, kite, reduced.
The Toy stencil gene complex has been simplified to one single gene and has no effect on Recessive Red here
(see "Pigeon Calculator Next Gen" for complex implementation and Rec.Red action).
There are a LOT of genes involved in pigeon colors!

But there is a new generation of Pigeon Calculators now !!!  Go to Plug-in version, Pied Pigeon Designer and Pigeon Calculator Next Gen.

Kies een doffer en een duivin en kruisen maar.
De kleurkeuze is nog beperkt, maar meer kleuren kunnen aangevraagd worden via Breedbook
Ik houd me aanbevolen voor duivenkleuren experts en genetici om het programma te verbeteren.
Bijvoorbeeld de diverse genen voor bonte patronen zijn grotendeels onbekend en daardoor nog niet meegenomen.
Doorkuisen met de nakomelingen is mogelijk.
Deze webpagina is tevens een demo hoe je de genetica calculator kunt aanroepen voor andere soorten dan de kip.
Zelf even de genen opsommen, logica schrijven over hun effect, en nog wat kleinigheden.
De Breedbook database kan op verzoek worden aangevuld.
Nieuw: advanced optie. Stel zelf het genotype samen; handig voor onfokzuivere dieren.
De engelse versie heeft de typische duivenhouders manier van genotype notatie. Ontwikkeld met hulp van engelsman Dave Walters.
Dave heeft een zeer goede duiven(genetica) website: National Federation of Flying Breed Pigeons, UK and heeft een eigen frisse kijk op de calculator.
Probeer zijn versie eens of lees de handleiding die hij erbij geschreven heeft.

Choose the parents and do a testcross.
The colorlists are limited but new colors can be requested via Breedbook
I recommend myself for comments of pigeon experts and geneticists for improvements of the programm.
For instance: the pied genes are not well understood and therefor not implemented.
You are able to continue crossing with one or two offspring from your testcross.
This webpage is also a demo how the genetic calculator engine can be called for other species than chicken or pigeon.
You only have to list the genes, write the logic how they express (dominance/epistatics) and a few other things.
The Breedbook database can be updated by request.
Includes advanced option. Genes are pickable from lists for heterozygosity.
The english version has the Pigeon Fancier way of Genotype Notation. Developed with help of Dave Walters.
Dave has a very good pigeon (genetics) website: National Federation of Flying Breed Pigeons, UK and has his own unbiased version of the calculator.
Try it or read his manual!

Punnett Square Calculator (Other species)

Flexibele Kruisingschema Generator (Punnett Square).
Ideaal voor biologieles of voor fokkers van andere diersoorten die snel een uitgebreid kruisingschema willen maken.
De invoer moet wel gebeuren zoals de voorbeelden aangeven, en zonder onbedoelde typefouten, maar goed.
Ook staan er enkele schoolvoorbeelden van kruisingen en erfelijkheidsprincipes.
Zelfs het geslacht van vogels en zoogdieren wordt bepaald, ondanks dat deze een omgedraaid aantal geslachtschromosomen hebben.
Ook doorkruisen is ondersteund. Een fenotype beschrijving is slechts mogelijk voor de opgenomen soorten.
Kan zonder internetverbinding werken.

Flexible Crossing scheme Generator (Punnett Square).
Suitable for biology class or breeders of other animal kinds that want to write out a (complex) crossing.
The input is to be done correctly, see examples, without unmeant typo's, but then it works.
Examples of crossing and genetic principals are present.
Even the gender of birds and mammals is determined, despite their reversed sex chromosome counts.
Of course you can continue with crosslings but a phenotype description can only be given for the listed species.
Can work without internet connection.

Other species, autocomplete:   Go      * = no crossing over percentages.

Cat Calculator (Kat / Katze)
Tortoise shell in cats is a combination of 2 sexlinked red alleles (O-locus).
Due to random inactivation of one X chromosome in female body cells there is an irregular pattern of red and black.
Tortoise shell males are not possible with normal chromosome composition (X//Y). However Red females are possible and fertile.
"Light lilac" in the calculator is often called "fawn".
New insights:
The mechanism of ticked/blotched (classic tabby)/mackerel is apparently revised. The one gene in the calculator has been replaced by 2 genes.
The gene T has the dominant allele Ta causing the ticked/abysinnian look and the recessive wildtype allele t, which allows the other tabby patterns.
The gene Mc has the dominant wildtype allele Mc, causing the Mackerel pattern ("tabby" in calculator); the recessive allele mc allows the blotched / classic tabby.
A third dominant gene Sp causes a spotted instead of a striped pattern.
Furthermore there is a dominant modifier to the Dense/dilute gene d: Dm. Blue becomes Caramel, and Cream (diluted red/orange) becomes Apricot.
In the Norwegian Forrest Cat, the Amber mutation has been found. This is a progessive reddening effect and probably due to a mutation on the Extension gene (MC1R).
This would mean a variation on "recessive red"!

New addition to the family of genetic calculators: cats.
First mammal with sex linked colorgenes. See remark above.

Duck Calculator (Eend / Ente)
Silver Appleyard is combined "restricted mallard" and "light phase".
Silver Callduck (Meeskleur) is combined "dusky mallard" and "harlequin phase", a more extreme form of "light phase".
Butterscotch phenotype looks a lot like (2 doses of) "blue dilution" plus "light phase" (apricot silver appleyard).
Light phase and Harlequin phase add a lot of white to the phenotype, except for the brown breast color (claret) of the drake which is extended.
Blue dilution is amplified by "extended black" (E). Without extended black the 2 dilution steps (single or double factor) are less apparent.


New addition to the family of genetic calculators: ducks.
Waiting for expert review. Effect of Buff dilution is not fully integrated (or understood by me).

Dog Calculator (Hond / Hund)
Black in dogs is mostly dominant, except in german shepherd (recessive black, Agouti-locus).
Red dogs (ranging to cream by unknown factors) can be Sables (Agouti-locus) or Recessive Reds (Extension-locus).
Sables often have black hairs eg. on their ears and can be Masked, Recessive Reds can not.
Mask is the most dominant Extension allele, Dominant Black being on the K-locus, as is Brindle. Both are typical Extension-alleles for other mammals.
Brindling only shows in red/yellow/tan patches of the coat, but is yet thought to be hypostatic to recessive red/yellow.
Mutants at the albino-locus (C) are very uncommon in dogs. Whitening effects (not spotting) are most often due to unknown factors diluting the phaeomelanin (red/yellow pigment).
White spotting around eyes and ears can impair those organs. Merle dogs should not be crossed for the homozygotes are also impaired.
Problem: merle is only visible on dogs with eumelanin (black/brown pigment), except maybe for the eyecolor. So red/yellow and merle should not be mixed.
Saddled (black and tan-like but paler) phenotype is probably not caused by a separate agouti-allele ( as ) but by a modifier on top of black and tan at.
Not covered: graying factor (eg. Terriers), Roan (resembles ticking, eg. Hounds).

Cattle Coat Color Calculator (Koe, rundvee / Hausrind)
Wildtype extension E+ is said, by some, to be recessive to both dominant black E and recessive red e. It is highly variable in nature.
Agouti-locus has little influence on cattle phenotypes.
The Lineback and Colorsided phenotypes are very similar. Some suggest different dominant White Spotting alleles for these because
Homozygote colorsided animals (eg "double" Witrik) are almost white, like Nellore white. Linebacks (eg. Pinzgauer) have their color as homozygotes.
Alternative explanation would be a White Spotting booster gene. Most white spotting phenotypes are very variable, possibly due to such modifiers.

Chicken Autosomal Red Calculator (Demo)
Note: This module can NOT be plugged into the chicken calculator (see further below)!
Silverbuff is a Serama color. Normally it has dark lacing on top of the silver buff color. You can get gold base-white lace-dark lace feathers!
Some, if not most fellow fancy geneticists, think that the Red enhancer in question is the wildtype allele itself, common in most breeds but unable to express like this.
In that case read Ar as Ar+ and ar+ as ar. My interpretation is that the "Serama-red" is a more potent red than the usual Autosomal Red.
My alleles would be Ar for Serama-red, dominant to ar+ (or Ar+) as wildtype autosomal red, on it's turn dominant to "inhibited red" ar, the latter not implemented.
The "inhibited red" would be contributing to absent salmon breast and clean silver shoulder of silver duckwings. One difficulty here is that heterozygous wheaten also inhibits salmon breast.
Wildtype Ar+ would for instance result in exhibition red shouldered homozygote silver duckwing cockerels.
Autosomal Red can be multiple genetic factors. No need to say that the status of all this is hypothetical.

Maak je eigen Genetica Calculator !!!

Je kunt nu zelf alle informatie ingeven om je eigen calculator te maken. Je kunt zelfs je eigen foto's laten verschijnen.
Daartoe moet je ze wel in een map op internet hebben ge-upload en moet je je foto's net zo noemen als het berekende uiterlijk zonder de spaties.
Probeer de Kam Calculator Demo maar eens. De on-line Wizard is het eenvoudigste om zulks te maken.
Ook kun je de querystring in de adresbalk van je browser aanpassen en opslaan door toe te voegen aan je favorieten. Geen typefoutjes maken.
Alle gegevens worden namelijk in de adresbalk van je browser gepropt. Je kunt niets verstieren, behalve je eigen experimenten.
De querystring gegevens zijn uitwisselbaar tussen de diverse flexmodules bv. de Rasek layout.
Maximum gegevenslengte is ongeveer 2000 karakters. Spaties (=%20) en dergelijke gebruiken tot 3 posities.

Create your own Genetic Calculator !!!

You can provide all information to make your own calculator. You can even illustrate it with your own pics.
Upload in one internet folder and name the pictures as the outcome without spaces.
Try the Comb Calculator Demo. The on-line Wizard-page is best suited for editing this info.
You can also edit the querystring that contains the info by hand and save it by adding it to your favorites. No typo's!
All info is stored in the querystring in the address bar of your browser. You can not mess up anyone's data but your own. It's safe.
Querystring data is fully exchangeable between the flexmodules eg the Rasek layout version.
The general limitation of querystring length is about 2000 characters. Note that spaces (=%20) and special characters use up to 3 positions.


Chinchilla Calculator (Silverfallchinchilla.com based Demo)
Chinchilla Calculator (No Picture Module)
Chinchilla Calculator Design Wizard (No Pic Module)

Chinchilla Calculator

Deze calculator is een voorbeeld van een zelf te bouwen calculator (via de wizard).
Hij is gebaseerd op de door iemand anders gebouwde chinchilla calculator (klik op foto).
De plaatjes zou ik kunnen "lenen" en uploaden, maar dat is misschien niet gewenst. Geen plaatjes dus.
Maar binnen een uurtje kun je dus zoiets in elkaar draaien.
De "Ebony"-genen begrijp ik niet, dus die zijn weggelaten, maar wel voorbereid.
Door creatieve oplossingen kun je ook vrij complexe afleidingen als voor deze soort maken.
Gebruik liefst unieke termen of verschil in hoofd/kleine letters, en plaats de genen en combinaties in de goede volgorde.
Voorkom dat Allel-symbolen met superscript (gebruik ^ ) elkaar overlappen, bv. A^g en A^gl. Noem ze bv. A^g en A^Gl .
Gebruik nergens komma's of punt-komma's en bij plaatjes ook geen schuine streep "/" in de effect-beschrijving. Ook geen dubbele spaties!
Ook de onderstaanden zijn zo gemaakt:

This is an example of a self built calculator by the on line wizard.
It is based on the Silverfallchinchilla.com chinchilla calculator (click image).
I could borrow the pictures and upload them, but this might not be appreciated. So no pics yet.
It took about an hour to built.
The "Ebony"-genes are not understood by me, so did not implement them. But they are pre-prepared.
By clever combinations you can even make more complex calculations like for this species.
Use unique terms as much as possible or different upper/lowercase, and move the genes and combinations in optimal order.
Make sure that Allele-symbols with superscript (use ^ ) don't overlap, eg. A^g and A^gl. Name them eg. A^g en A^Gl .
Never use comma's or semicolons and for pictures don't use slashes "/" in the effect-descriptions. Also no double spaces!
The following were made in the same manner:


Guinea Fowl Calculator, new theory (Parelhoen / Perlhuhn)


Peacock Calculator (Pauw / Pfau / Pavo cristatus)
This calculator covers the common mutations available in Western Europe. There are a lot more.
Pied is the combined effect of the White ( W ) and the Pied ( wpd ) mutations of the same gene ( W ).
Homozygous Pied gene gives the so called "Dark Pied" phenotype, indicating less white patches as the combination W/wpd.
In the calculator treated the same as "White marked" (het/split white) for simplicity.



Golden Pheasant Calculator (Goudfazant / Goldfasan / Chrysolophus pictus)
Note: This calculator is hypothetical. The known mutants are implemented as autosomal recessive.
There are more mutations like peach (oranje), cinnamon (kaneel), pied (bont), white (wit), isabel and brown (bruin?).

Neckring is not present in all subspecies of Phasanius colchicus.
Wheaten and Melanistic can suppress the neckring. Wheaten has less black pattern.

Turkey Calculator (Kalkoen / Truthahn)
Sources: Robertson et al, Asmundson et al, Porterturkeys.com
Cröllwitzer, Ermine Ronquieres (Hermelijn) and Royal Palm (see pic above) is the combined effect of the Palm-, Blackwing- and Narragansett-mutations.
Partridge (Patrijs) is Blackwinged Bronze. Yellow shoulder (Geelschouder) is probably Ermine Red.
Black uniquely is a diluter of Red pigment, while Slate/Blue has little effect (Robertson).
The Palm mutation is implemented at the Recessive white locus C.



Muscovy Duck Calculator (Muskuseend / Moschusente, Warzenente / Cairina moschata)
Note: Lavender is also called Self-blue because it inhibits certain patterns. This effect is not yet applied. Lavender plus Chocolate gives Cream.
The other Blue is often laced and is semi-dominant. 2 Doses gives Pearl-grey or Silver. 1 Dose combined with Chocolate gives Lilac (Isabel), 2 doses give Buff.
Since "Atipico" does not always have a visible effect in adult plumage, and other self/unicolor effects are poorly documented, these are not included in the calculator.
Sepia/Faiogeno may be the same as "Bronze".

Muskus Eend Calculator (Nederlandstalige versie, met dank aan Norbert Schollaert)


Goose Calculator (Tamme gans / Hausgans)
Goose Calculator, with spotting as autosomal *
Note: normal white geese are Sexlinked Diluted (dimorphic) plus Pied *.
A dimorphic female is (diluted) grey, a male, if double factor, is white; if single factor he should resemble the female.
2 Doses of the semi-dominant Blue dilution gives an almost white bird, sometimes called Silver.
Some breeds of Blue geese are claimed to be a purebreedable (dominant) Blue.
For that situation just use Silver and Blue both as Blue Phenotype in the calculator.
Lilacs or creams, combinations of Blue (or Silver) with Buff, are not yet documented. As are combinations with all these and sex linked diluted.
There are dimorphic pied breeds, probably due to another pied gene or a modifier, else they would be white.
* = The spotting gene Sp, also Pied or Saddleback pattern, may be an autosomal gene.

Pig Coat Color Calculator (Varken / Schwein / Sus scrofa)
Note: The western pink skinned pig is called (dominant) white.

Although the genetics are simple this is a typical mammal with an effective Agouti-locus and a full range Extension-locus.
Main pigments are eumelanin (black) and phaeomelanin (red). The agouti-locus influences patterns of distribution of these pigments.
Order of dominance is mostly from phaeomelanin rich to poor and opposite for eumelanin.
Thus recessive black is the most recessive Agouti allele in most mammals.
Most dominant Agouti allele in some mammals renders completely red which can be as pale as white (goat, sheep). In pigs this is not the case.
The extension locus is quite the opposite. The more dominant alleles boost eumelanin up to full black (Dominant Black),
while the most recessive allele (Recessive Red) renders a red animal without any black. As in pigs. Agouti has no effect anymore in these extreme extensions.
It is more about all or nothing than functional distribution of pigment like in agouti. Brindle is often at this locus (exceptions: dog, cat)
In the pig calculator no diluters are covered (no documentation found). Diluters can dilute one or both pigment kinds.
Typical eumelanin (=black) dilution effect is brown/chocolate or blue/smoky. For red it is yellow or cream.
Next to diluters most mammals have a form of white spotting (white = no pigment) ranging from small marks to full white.
These mutations are not very favorable in nature. Some are quite unhealthy!


Pig Coat Color Calculator, special picture module (Varken / Schwein / Sus scrofa)
Pig Coat Color Calculator, new Tab-view Tree-view module ! (Varken / Schwein / Sus scrofa)
This module has illustrated gene "picklists". You can switch to an alternative layout. Coming soon: colorlist layout.
Do not use these modules for species with a lot of genes and/or alleles. Performance is costly and the pics use up a lot of screen-space.
For this module to work properly you should provide a complete set of pictures and be careful with the Gene/Locus On screen Display order.

Horse Coat Color Calculator (Paard / Pferd / Equus)
Horse Coat Color Calculator with Crossing Over and KIT Linkage (BETA)
Note: True white horses are very rare. Most common white spotting is Sabino.
More on Sabino, Tobiano, Frame Overo and Splashed White... | More on Horse Genetics... | More on Horse Colors...
The Przewalski horse is Dun on Light Bay (light yellow dun). Dun causes the wildtype striping.
The Light Bay = wildtype agouti allele is not very common in domestic horses. Choose another agouti locus for more illustrations.
Alternative hypothesis to Light Bay is a dominant gene called Mealy/Pangare giving the lighter muzzle, underside and such.
Note: Only the 2nd calculator has linkage and crossing over implemented for Extension and KIT(Dom.white/Sabino/Roan)/Tobiano.

Jennifer Hoffman's Horse Coat Color Designer webpage
Jennifer Hoffman inspired Horse Coat Color Calculator (Paard / Pferd / Equus)
This special module is inspired by Jennifer Hoffman's excellent Horse Coat Color Designer.
In this module the pictures of the coat colors are layered.
This enables a lot more illustration than in the old modules (one picture per coat color).
The composed pictures of the crossing result can be shown by clicking the blank picture area.
Only base colors are shown directly.
How does it work?
For color aspects to be layered on top of the base color do the following:
In the wizard tabpage "Alleles info" fields "Full effect" and/or "Heterozygous, partial effect" add a minus sign "-" at the end.
The "end color" is split on this sign into its components and the layers from top to bottom are in the order of start to end of the color desciption.

Jennetic calculator, Donkey Coat Color Calculator (Ezel / Esel / Equus asinus)
Note: Ivory or Blue eyed cream is an almost white color. Recessive in nature unlike the Cremello mutation (Cream dilution) in horses.
There is a chocolate/brown gene in donkeys unlike in horses, but it is not well documented or easily recognized. Bay donkeys are rare and have dark legs.
The color of the donkeys knows 3 main areas: body, points (muzzle, eye rings, belly, upperleg) and trim (mane and tail).
Chestnut (recessive red) of donkeys is called sorrel. Russet phenotype is similar but with black trim.
Donkeys can have light points or dark points on any color, although dark points are only common in non sorrel animals.
Dark (non-dun) donkeys with dark points are completely dark (black). Dun sorrels are called light sorrels or rose duns.
White Spotting combined with Roan gives dark eyed white. Roan is dominant on non-sorrels but recessive on sorrels!
White spotting (dominant) is everything from facial blaze to large white patches. Stars are not considered white spotting.
Smoky phenotype, a dark gray with visible wildtype striping, is not covered or well documented.




Sheep Coat Color Calculator (Schaap / Schaf)
Note: White sheep, like white goats, are in fact very pale cream, yellow or red animals (no expression of eumelanin pigment i.e. black or brown).
Most agouti patterns in sheep are intermediate.
Grey is the "white underwool" phenotype. Shaved animals have dark head and extremities with a light body.
English blue sheep often have a tan spot beneath the eye. It is an agouti variant.
Found no documentation on occurence of recessive red, still it is already included.
Not covered: the Phaeo gene, colors white areas, being pale cream, back to red/tan. White spotting is not affected.
Another term for brown in sheep is moorit. Dominant black sheep (Extension-locus) should resemble recessive black sheep (Agouti-locus).



Fallow Deer Coat Color Calculator (Damhert / Damhirsch / Cervus dama)
Note: This calculator is hypothetical. The known mutants are implemented as autosomal recessive.
The combination of Melanistic and Menil is undocumented.
The gene symbols are not the official ones. A recessive melanistic mutant is probably at the agouti locus. See other mammals.
The white fallow deer are not true albino's so they could be a pale recessive red.
Menil is a form resembling common but with brown/red instead of black stripe on back, tail and framing the hind.
This could be an extension- or a brown-mutation. It looks a bit pale for typical brown-mutation.
In the first case Menil plus Melanistic should be self red, in the second case it would be a self brown color.
Both base colors are common so the combination should be common too.
Melanistic deer are not true blacks, they are shades of dark brown without white spots, stripes or belly.

Zebravink Calculator (Zebrafinch, dutch only, usage is confidential)
NB: Geen crossing over percentages voor de geslachtsgebonden genen grijs/bruin en bleekrug/masker.
Pastel is autosomaal en dominant en lethaal in fokzuivere toestand.
Het eigenlijke Bleekrug fenotype is bleekrug mutatie gecombineerd met masker mutatie.
Grijze zebravinken worden doorgaans phaeomelanine gereduceerd gekweekt en bruine eerder phaeomelanine intensief.

Button Quail Calculator (Chinese dwergkwartel, Coturnix chinensis)
Note: Splashed is a selection from whites allowing colored feathers portions.
Recessive White breeding lines often carry Dominant Pied mutation (and vice versa),
so crossing White with Non-Whites can lead to pied offspring and Pied to Pied can sometimes produce whites.
Blueface is in fact a semi-dominant mutation. Double factored it is darker.
Completely Black phenotype (?) and Pink Eyed Dilute mutation are not covered yet.

Extended Pigeon Calculator (English version, Demo)
Example genes: Gimpel/Arch angel copper/bronze (koper), Baldhead pied pattern, Almond series, Opals, Kite, Reduced, Icy.
Limitation: The effect, that added genes behave differently under recessive red or spread or so, can not be taken into account.
Gimpel is covered by Spread, some Whiteshield genes only work under recessive red (see remark below).
Gimpel copper (or any red) can be diluted to "gold" by the "Pale" mutation dp, an allele of the sex-linked Dilute locus D.
This allele dilutes less than the allele dilute d. Black is only little affected (flattened) while dilute d makes it Dun.
Recessive to wildtype D+ but dominant to dilute d. Although the combination pale/dilute resembles full dilute.
Gimpel is pre-prepared in the standard pigeon calculator.
Therefor the phenotype effect is shown in the standard color description (between round brackets)
whereas other added genes' effects are shown on a separate line or between square brackets [ ].
Both/all added effects are not shown in the pics.
Almond series is a sexlinked incomplete dominant series of mutations. Dosage effect (only in males) is hard to implement in the calculator.
So the light homozygotes and the classic heterozygotes are grouped together.
The hemizygous females look like the classic heterozygote males.

Extended Pigeon Calculator Design Wizard (Demo)

The pied genes of the pigeon remain a mystery. Still I made a little tool to experiment with, a Pied Pigeon Designer if you like.
For the unknown genes I provided a dominant AND a recessive allele for most scenarios. None are implemented as sexlinked though.
Use the wizard to adjust.
Some pied patterns I have dissected as independant of their complex pattern.
For instance the "Huhnschecke"-pattern, a white neck/flight(=wingtip)/belly type pattern.
With this tool you could explore unknown combinations of the hypothetical pied genes.
No garantuees given that you could breed them in reality of course.
Some neighbouring effects I have implemented as enhancing each other, the combined white area being bigger than both separate.
Exercise: Try to approach the "Lahore"-pattern.
Let me know if you know/find any facts that contradict (or confirm) any of this (mail to "spmdmp at gmail.com").
Whiteshield (and possibly Whitebelly) on non rec.red pigeons might be selections on a grizzle like factor.
These are hard to breed consistently and not implemented here.

Pied Pigeon Calculator (Hypothetical)

Finally: the Next Generation Pigeon Calculator ! (BETA BETA BETA)
This one includes the Arch angel/Gimpel and Icy mutation, for these produce clear and strong colors.
The Toy stencil complex of genes are not implemented as one single gene here, but as 3 genes, 2 dominant and 1 recessive.
Also implemented is an effect on Recessive Red. Note the resemblance with the Rec.Red only Whiteshield gene mechanism!
The pictures are generated by layering one effect upon another. There will be some tweaking in the future.
Dilution for instance is accomplished by an opaque overlay of white (black => dun) or yellow (black => brown, red => yellow).
The color tones may be way off or exagerated, but should be an indication of the gene effects.
The pied genes have been included also, see previous paragraph.
Please use this calculator with caution, keep it a secret until further notice.
The amount of illustration should be much higher than the standard calculators, but some subtle effects can not be shown.
Only use the word "white" in added genes for "full white" to not interfere with the pied gene handling.
The most common genes can be added by "hyperlinks" at the bottom of the page.
The layering, opacity and flipping of the images is done on the webserver by PHP, so don't overuse.

The Agouti monster: Goat Coat Color Calculator (Geit / Ziege)
White goats except the dominant white Angora are very pale cream animals. Dominant black is uncommon except in the Angora breed.
The Toggenburger goat is a light brown goat with swiss markings and a pale tan-color.
There are over 20 agouti patterns in goats! The tan parts of combined patterns are dominant.




Llama and Alpaca Coat Color Calculator (Lama en Alpaca)
The Llama is the domesticated Guanaco, Alpaca is the domesticated Vicuna. Both South-American relatives of the camels.
The calculator is based on Dr Sponenberg. Brown and most other diluters are probably absent from these species.
Main color influence is the agouti-locus, effects ranging from Pale Shaded Fawn to Black. Like goats in that order of dominance.
Blacks are mostly agouti based recessive blacks. Dominant blacks are rare to absent. Recessive reds are uniform (=self) fawn colored.
Next to a Dominant White the combination Piebald Spotted and Roan (=Grey) gives a Blue eyed white, possibly deaf animal.
Tuxedo spotting is dominant and appears on head, neck and extremities. Not covered is harlequin in Alpaca, called appaloosa in Llama.

New: self made calculator in other layout and with unknown genotyping (Wildcard)

Een veelgevraagde wens is om onduidelijke genotypes in te kunnen geven.
Dat gegeven in combinatie met de layout van Rasek's calculators heeft deze nieuwe module opgeleverd.
Naast de vaste genotypes kun je rechts ervan onbekende genotypes aanklikken.
Er is nu een alternatieve layout volgens Renate Regitz (Kaninchenwissen.de). Je kunt in de zelfbouwcalculator direct van layout veranderen.
Die layout bestaat uit twee rijen allelen per locus/gen. Na klikken worden ze gesorteerd zodat het dominanste allel in de bovenste rij staat.
Zie de Geit calculator. Geïllustreerd i.v.m. de vele agouti-patronen.

Much requested is the possibility to leave a genotype unknown/open.
That in combination with the layout of Rasek's calculators rendered this new module.
Next to the exact genotypes you can click on fuzzy ones to the right of them.
There is yet another layout proposed by Renate Regitz (Kaninchenwissen.de). You can switch layout from the self built calculators directly.
This layout comprises 2 rows of alleles per gene. After clicking they are resorted, the most dominant allele goes to the top row.
See Goat Calculator. Has pictures to show the many agouti patterns.

Full circle: Chicken Wildcard Calculator

Dit is een hybride tussen de zelfbouw-module en de kip calculator.
Het beste van beide? Een eventueel wildcard-effect staat tussen de blokhaken [ ] evenals de nog toe te voegen genen.
De oude genen worden nu weer uit de tekst tussen de blokhaken verwijderd. Om zeker te gaan dat de nog toe te voegen genen doorkomen
kun je daarvoor het beste de effect-teksten zonder hoofdletters of geheel in hoofdletters opgeven.
Wijzig je een bestaande tekst, dan is er kans dat het uitfilteren niet meer goed werkt.
Er is nu ongeveer ruimte voor 7 extra simpele genen. Hoe korter de teksten hoe meer genen en combinaties mogelijk zijn.
Als je de grens van ca 2000 characters overschrijdt zal je link niet meer werken. Sommige browsers kunnen meer aan.
Zelfde verhaal voor de konijn-versie. Hier is meer plek voor nieuwe genen. De plaatjes worden nog uit de Breedbook database gehaald.
Daarom kun je de volgorde van de Genen (Gen/Locus info) beter niet wijzigen.
Wel kun je combinaties opgeven die bv verduidelijkend zijn (probeer bij konijn maar eens chinchilla + agouti + yellow).

This is a hybrid between the self built calculator and the chicken calculator.
Best of both worlds? Wildcard effect and added genes are shown between square brackets [ ].
The "old" genes are removed from that text. To let this continue it is best to enter new effects in complete lowercase or uppercase.
When altering an existing old gene effect the filtering might fail.
There is space now for 7 additional not too complex genes. The shorter the descriptions the more genes and combinations are possible.
If you pass 2000 characters your hyperlink will seize to work. Some browsers support much more characters.
Same story for the Rabbit-version. More space for genes here. Pictures are from the Breedbook database. Different mechanism.
Better not change the order of the Genes (Gene/Locus info).
What you can do is add extra combinations that can show an alternate name (Try chinchilla + agouti + yellow).

Flexible Crossing Over Calculator Design Wizard

BETA: Self build Crossing Over Calculator

Nu kun je ook voor gekoppelde genen de Crossing Over percentages laten berekenen.
Wel moet alle benodigde data worden opgevoerd. Je koppelt de genen op gen/locus nivo met de keuzelijst aan de koppelingsgroep.
Daarnaast maak je een extra Combinatie met de 2 Gen-symbolen en een Crossing Over-percentage (positief geheel getal, zeker geen komma, geen %-teken).
Het werkt als volgt: Bij de gekoppelde genen is bij de 2 rijen radio knoppen een chromosoom nummer aangegeven.
Bij onafhankelijke genen heeft het geen effect om de bovenste of onderste rij aan te klikken.
Doorkruisen en onthouden moet nu via het kruisingsschema (Punnett square).
Deze module is nog een proefversie.

Now you can add linkage groups of genes in this experimental module to calculate including Crossing Over percentages.
You have to submit all the necessary data for this feature. You can couple the genes with the dropdown list at gene/locus-level.
Next to that you have to make an extra combination with the 2 gene-symbols and a Crossing Over percentage (positive integer, no comma, no %-sign).
It works like this: With the linkage group genes the 2 rows of radio buttons are numbered by chromosome.
For independant genes it has no effect to choose upper or lower radio button.
Continue and remember functionality is via the Punnett square method.
This module is still in testing stage.
