Genetic symbol V
Common name Dirty
Inheritance Autosomal dominant
Mutation type Modifier
Description Feathering generally becomes darker and "dirty"-looking, skin and feet black in nest.

Dirty is an allele at the V locus. This mutation is dominant to wild type.


This mutation causes the bird's feathers to be darker than usual, and young pigeons in the nest have distinctive black legs and feet.
