    Dominant Genes, Male or Female?

    Was curious as to whether when breeding if the male or female has dominant genes. I have heard but never read that the male does.
    So figured I would put this out there to those who have bred their rays, if they have observed if pups tended to take after the male
    or female traits.
    Sometimes in our confusion, we see not the world as it is, but the world through eyes blurred by the mind.

    it doesn't quite work like that.
    At its simplest, a gene for any given characteristic has a 1 in 4 chance of expressing itself.
