Red Eyes?

Recommended Posts

Hey all just a quick one, 3 of my bubbas have red eyes

Any suggestions I am guessing it is from Margoos side as he is White with the pales Blue on his rump and we worked it out that he was an Opaine last time and she is a Norm

Neat maybe one of the parents is split for cinnamon, if so the red eyes will go black looking soon about 8 days onwards. :)

OR If it's a red eye for a ino it means they are hens and your male is split for it.

actually cock CAN be split there is a50/50 chance of getting the Ino gene or the normal gene.

I have a sky blue cock split for albino that I bred last year and I have put him with a yellow face grey hen. I could if lucky get a Yellow face albino

 

This is how it goes

Sex linked

1. Normal cock x ino hen - 50% normal split ino cocks & 50% normal hens

 

2. Ino cock x normal hen - 50% normal split ino cocks & 50% ino hens.

 

3. Ino cock x ino hen - 100% ino cocks and hens

 

4. normal split to ino x normal hen - 25% normal split to ino cocks,

25% normal hens

25% ino hens

25% normal cocks

 

5.normal split ino x ino hen - 25% normal split to ino cocks

25% ino cocks

25% normal hens

25% ino hens

 

I hope this helps Neat.

There's something special about finding a red eyed chick in a nest :) I cannot explain it. But I just got a surprise with a second chick hatched to a greygreen spangle hen and a grey green normal cock is a red eyed chick too. :D

Or the cock is split cinnamon and the chicks are cinnamon. How old are the chicks.

...just to mention that no Budgie is split for Albino. Albino is not a gene it is a composite of the blue gene and the ino gene. If you get an Albino from a green birds then odds are that the cock is split ino and both birds are split blue.

Daz, is it said that way because it is a sex-linked gene and the male needs 2 of them to visually express this gene vs a female that only needs 1 sex-linked gene to express the gene?

Well that is right with all sex linked genes. But with an Albino you need the blue.

The ino gene removes all colour except the yellow. The blue gene removed the yellow. On exception to this is the lacewings. The Cinnamon colouring caused by the gene with still show through. On The topic of Lacewing. I believe that it is a gene that a birds can be split to like the Clearbody. It is not just an ino and a cinnamon togeather. I think I put up some where the pairs for this.
