Try using outcrosses to balancers with dominant markers and subsequent
backcrosses to check for segregation of your chromosomes of interest.
Some common balanced stocks are:
2nd chromosome: Cyo/Sco
3rd chromosome: TM6B Tb e/TM3 Sb e
Good luck and if you do not have these stocks try Bloomington Stock
Center. Good luck,
