Day 6: Who Do I Look Like?

Round 1 - The First Generation


-----------------------------------------------

If you have not already done so, we suggest that you read the Rules of the Game before proceeding.

Grandfather General Cornwallace served as a Confederate officer in the war between the states. He is famous for leading the Fowl Brigade against the attack on his home plantation of Cooper's Hill. Shortly after the war, he married a school teacher named Beatrice from a neighboring plantation. Grandfather Cornwallace was a Black Rose Comb Bantam and his blushing bride, Beatrice, was a White Rose Comb Bantam.

They had four chicks who went on to take their places in American History. Much to the General's delight, all four children favored him; they all had black feathers.

Roostervelt, their oldest, became a Senator. He married a beautiful southern lady named Belle. Belle was a White Rose Comb Bantam just like Roostervelt's mother.

The oldest daugher of the General and Beatrice, Corrie, became a famous scientist.

Their younger son, Wyatt sought his fortune out west.

Their youngest daughter, Nightengale, became one of the first Red Cross nurses. While volunteering her services overseas, she fell in love with a young fighter pilot. Her true love, Colonel Earl Flynn, was a Black Rose Comb Bantam.

Beatrice had so hoped that at least one of her children would favor her and have white feathers. But the General is only capable of producing offspring with black feathers. Perhaps one of her grandchildren might favor her. Using the chart provided, can you figure out the probable genotype of each of the family members?
