Abstract

I SHOULD be very grateful if anyone could tell me whether there is anything known with regard to the egg colour of birds. Is there here, by any chance, a field for investigation which may throw light upon the so-called Mendelian phenomena? Or is there yet any explanation of how the egg becomes coloured, or why?
