Anyone else have a surprise color outcome??
Look at this pic:
Papa is Tim (Lower Left)
Mama Lemonade (is on my avitar)
Two Yellow Birds. There is a touch of pale green on Tim's Back
We have 3 hatchlings. When the biggest and noisiest began to sprout feathers, he turned out is white and pale blue. No yellow whatsoever. Healthy - eats from mom and dad But if they were human Tim might accuse Lemonade of 'cheating' with Karl, because we have no light blues - and Karl, Classic Blue is closest in color of our Boys to baby Sky (tennative name) -- They never came in contact. Karl is in a different cage focused on Zula....
FYI - Katya passed, and we obtained a Boy - Banana (Yellow), and a Girl - Cobalt (Blue)... 4 babies are with new families, we also kept Swinger, along with Lemonade... A charismatic dominant male. . Cobalt is a fallback option next year for Karl if Zula turns out to be bare, or maybe Clem's (Gray) conquest... Banana. when he is old enough, may to be able to tame Sunny the Wild... Lemonade, now a year old, is a better mom than her mom was.
But her kids ... 2 of 3 have no yellow, and both parents are yellow. Anyone else have such an experience?
