Cinnamon?
 
Quick question about cinnamon.

Am I right that becasue i have visual cinnamon chicks and the mother hen is visual cinnamon that the cock bird, who is visual normal, MUST be split to cinnamon?

Therefore the cinnamon chicks in the clutch could be either cocks or hens?

Have i got his all right?

Yes that is all correct. :)

As long as the hen is definitely a Cinnamon, I know some Yellow Faced Greywings can look a bit cinnamony as the yellow washes over the grey markings giving them a brown tint...:S

Have a sky blue violet cinnamon hen and greywing spangle cobalt violet cock.
Chicks were 2 greywing and two regular color. 3 chicks were also spangle.
Does this mean that my regular color chicks are "split" for cinnamon, and the greywing chicks are not?

Not quite! All your male chicks will be split for cinnamon, regardless if greywing or not. Cinnamon cannot show visually in chicks if the falther is not split for it.

A female cinnamon (when paired with a normal male that isn't split for cinnamon) will produce normal females and normal males split for cinnamon.

How interesting. My new budgie's white feathers have a greyish tint to them and I thought that maybe they are just dirty but she could just be cinnamon. :cool:She looks exactly like your budgie on the right of the pic.

Greyish markings could indicate greywing or a couple of other varieties, cinnamons have brown markings.
