HETS...WHAT_ARE_THEY? (Part 2)

Probable Het………..as stated earlier………….many people consider a 66% poss het to be probable…………probable means "yes" to some people……………….bottom line is this………..you still have a 33% chance that you will probably NOT get the gene…..LOL

Dollar for dollar though…………..the poss hets are the way to go………..I have produced homos from many poss hets and still do……………..they are cheaper than hets…………..and fun to "Prove" out………..and if bought from a reputable breeder……….they should be just what they say they are…………..I suggest getting all the girls you can get when buying poss hets…..50% and 66% alike……………

Poss Poss het……………….LOL………..this means that the snake is "possibly" a possible het……………..this comes from breeding a 50% poss het or a 66% poss het to a normal………..or even other poss hets…………………this is the LOOOOOOOONNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG way to finding a gene……………and you may never hit it!!!!!………..But it can be done………..and will be done………….. This is the poor man's way to a homo……………….example……………

You buy a 50% or 66% poss het male of some gene for $350.00………..cheap right?……………So this snake is just a poss het……….but in your mind………you will breed it like it was a TRUE REAL DEAL HET!!!!!( it very well may be )……………that's the way to do it!!!……………….keep that mind set through out the project and do not get cold feet ………this is the "key"………..anyway………….once you breed this male…or males………….to some normal girls…………….ALL the baby "daughters" produced will be considered possible possible hets………..meaning it is possible that they are 50% possible hets…………the only way this could be true is if the father is a het…………but you bought him as a possible het………….so here you have this huge mud pile of potentially het animals to prove out……………..this is what it is all about……….imagine producing a piebald from an investment on $350.00……one 50% poss het pied male………………it can be done!!!!!…………..I would suggest getting a definite het male at sometime during this project………..but hey………..I'm impatient sometimes………………..so that is what a possible possible het is………………..NOTHING……..unless you made them yourself from trusted stock…………….this is fun people………….but don't waist your time on bargains and liars……………know that the GENE was and is present in the BREEDERS collection…………..don't be fooled into a bargain of NORMAL snakes ……………

Homozygous……………Homo for short…………this is the cream of the crop…………what your looking for……………..the trait is clear and present………..and in your face……………you produced a baby albino………….or pied………..or what ever you long for in this crazy mutation market………………… het x het = 25% homo het x homo = 50% homo homo x homo = ALL HOMOS………..

This lesson has nothing to do with the Dominant and Co-Dominant mutations……………that will be another day…………..

So now hopefully some of you who have emailed me about what all the het stuff means will read this and understand it better…………it is very simple stuff to understand once it is explained to you out of the clinical realm…………I myself like things explained easy…………and this should be just that………

I'm tired now………..and delirious from genetics………bad grammar and misspelled words……………..but you get it now I bet……………enjoy your projects at what ever level you can afford!!!!!!!!!!!
