Hi people! Wondering if someone could help me with the mutations of my birdies? I once knew but cant remember now.. Also while we are here, who would you pair and why? What colour babies could i end up with? Lets go with Sven (blue male) as number 1 and Minty (my little lady) can be number 2 i think she is opaline golden face but is her colour skyblue?? Shes like a greeny turqoise colour. Svens back (1) Mintys back (2) Teeko, male - opaline cobolt or violet??? Number 3 Pixel Number 4 - This is an OLD picture. havent got anything new of her. Recessive pied?.... I havent got any pics of her back but she has a couple of dark little feathers. only picture i have that shows Pixels back spots (4)
This is dad- a normal cobalt, split to ino and opaline. This is mum - yellow faced dominant pied. These two have produced albinos and creminos. The next three pictures are some of their offspring - all with red/ruby eyes. The first I initially thought was a female lacewing which I now believe to be a male fallow. I don't know much about fallows but because the long tail feather is a dark blue and it is male, I believe it cannot be a lacewing. Can anyone offer any help regarding type of fallow and what this means re the parents genetics? The next one, I believe is a is a white-faced female lacewing. Again can anyone offer any explanation re genetics? e.g. mum or dad carries cinnamon gene??? The last offspring is a yellow faced male lacewing. This I don't understand because I thought lacewing was a sex-linked mutation suggesting that the baby would need to be female. So how can this be? Can anyone offer an explanation of how the mum and dad were able to produce these offspring? What should it tell me about the genetics of the mum and dad and the offspring? Do I have the mutations of the babies correct or am I wrong? Please help because I am intrigued.
