when breeding how often do you guys consider the health instead of the looks of a bird "like albinos that wont live as long" and if you breed a particular type how do you try to improve the the quality of them. I have been told throw in a green bird every two or 3 generations to make sure they are healthy. I dont know how true this is but I want to know

The only mutation to look out for when breeding is Crested, as double factor Crested is fatal.
There have been many debates about INOs not living as long, but this is not true. It all comes down to how you look after your birds during their lives and breeding process.

Health is always important.If a bird is not healthy there is no sence of trying to breed it for many obvious reasons.Albino's will live just as long as any other types.I have one custaer that lost hers after 14 years I sold her.A double factor crest is not fatal (leathal)...another myth.I have about ten double factors.A couple I bought and the rest I have bred and are breeding now to normals and producing crested's.One in particular has given 11 chicks in three rounds(resting now)and never lost one chick.Crested have now become my passion.
