Tail Feathers Note that the Grey Wings has only 50% of normal body colour depth.

You can have a Grey wing with full bodycolour, this is a cross between Grey Wing and Clear Wing.

You can't have a Grey Wing split for Clear Wing then!

You can also have a Cinnamon Grey Wing, and as you normally don't see any cinnamon markings, but a Grey Wing with even more diluted wingmarking, it is very easy to take it for a Yellow or a White.

(These descriptions below are Normal Split/to the recessive gene)

NORMAL 100% melanine in body, cheekpatches, wings and tail
NORMAL/ grey wing 100% melanine in body, cheekpatches, wings and tail
