Codominance is a form of inheritance in which two different alleles for a gene are both expressed, and neither allele is dominant over the other. One example of codominance is feather color in erminette chickens; the alleles for black feathers and white feathers are codominant. If a homozygous white chicken and a homozygous black chicken mate, what would you expect to find in their offspring?

    Since neither feather color is dominant over the other, the answer can't be choices A or B. Choice D would be incomplete dominance, which is a blending inheritance, so thats not the answer. In choice C, both traits are expressed simultaneously without blending, so that is the answer.
