Recessive red is an allele at the e locus. This mutation is recessive to wild type.



Recessive red is an autosomal recessive mutation. This means that both parents need to carry the mutant gene for it to express in the next generation. As a recessive mutation, it is possible for this mutation to be carried by a bird who does not visually express it.



Recessive red can be part of the genotype for many phenotypes, including: almond, deroy, orojo, naked neck, yellow, and others.
