well..... I'd tagged the bird.... but some other customers we're a little upset with the noise..I guess...  could have been my first shot missed and took out the chip display (that was a mess...).  I told the lady I was sorry, it's just that her hair doo looked like a big ol' Tom struttin!     --099-780

Believe it or not... a majority of solid white animals are deaf. It is a genetic flook. Dogs, cats, horses.... If it was not a genetic flook, meaning it was bred to be white, such as a white horse with a gray horse... then that is a little different. But most out of the ordinary white animals are cause by a genetic misfunction in their makeup. I worked at a veterinarian clinic (way back in the day) and once knew a breeder of these white cats with one blue eye and one brown/yellow eye, about 80% of those offspring were entirely deaf.

Just thought I would share that!!

Very interesting fact, thanks for the tidbit of info.  I never knew that.  I assume that would go for an albino deer?  What about a piebald?
