Hello guys!

I am currently in the process of breeding my own type of chicken, or will be when my rooster comes. I am hoping you guys can stear me towards links or books that might help me better understand the chicken genome. In short I guess I need to know what traits share chromosomes. It’s been difficult for me to track down this info, so I’m hoping someone can help out. Thanks in advance.

I used to be really into this when I raised chickens, hope to do it again soon.
but if you got any specific questions I might be able to help find and answer.
