Breeding for tails

Was reading the examples and have a question. If you have two HM siblings with a DT recessive, then you will get 25% HM, and 25% DT and 50% mixed.

So whats in that mixed part?

Physically, the mix will show both traits. You may have HM with slightly to long dorsal. Sometimes you might end up with a double caudal but uneven lobes. Most will not show the DT trait (DT is recessive) - but carry the genes. These are basically DT geno's.
