OMIA 001154-9031 : Plumage pattern (Blue Andalusian) in Gallus gallus

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Co-Dominant

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific symbol: Pg

Inheritance: The characteristic "blue" plumage in the Blue Adalusian breed being due to heterozygosity at an autosomal locus was first speculated by Bateson and Saunders (1902).

Breed: Blue Andalusian.
