why are some chickens white?

Apparently this is a question that has been known to keep some biologists awake at night. (Can't say I'm one of them; my insomnia is caused by other, equally pressing issues LOL)

Anyway, ERV has written a lovely post looking at this: apparently it's all to do with metabolic pathways and endogenous retroviruses. Go over there & soak up the goodness :-)

(And sleep well.)
