Does anyone have a good explanation of how to figure generation, maybe on a website somewhere or something? This is kind of confusing to me. I understand that the joey would be one generation higher than the parents, but somebody had said something on another post a while back about adding a .5 for WF grand parents. If this is true....then does that make the joeys of this pair 2.5 like the father?
Sorry, I love genetics but this confuses me and I would like to understand more clearly.

They would be 2+ gen wf. (if they are wf)

When I classify generation (just my own personal way) is they are either a whole number (ie, 1st, 2nd, 3rd), they are whole plus half (ie 1.5, 2.5, 3.5) or they are whole number + (ie 1+, 2+, 3+) because I just hate working out the actual fractions.

In your situation, I believe your joeys would actually be 2.25 gen (which is why I would call them 2+ gen)

How's THAT for confusing???

Yeah, that is confusing. But thanks for telling me. At least I will know what to tell others about the babies when the time comes.

I've got two WFB boys that I've always referred to as 1st gen because their dad is a grey, even though their mom is actually a sunkissed 4th generation wfb with the frostiest most beautiful coat ever. =)

Yes, your babies would be considered 1st Generation sice one parent is grey even though the mom is 4th generation.

I still get confused on the generation thing too. I'm sure Justine (suggieDelight) could help us out on this. I have always had greys, Cupid is my first WFB, and he's considered 1st generation because his mom was a grey, but dad was a WFB. HTH smile
