FAQ: are combinations of alleles of the same gene on the Z chromosome only males?

FAQ: are combinations of alleles of the same gene on the Z chromosome only males? (PallidIno or PaleIno or PalePallid)

Indeed, since it are both alleles of the same gene, and only a male has two Z chromosomes, it can only be a male. Females only have one Z chromosome. So there are no female PallidIno birds.
