Genetics hiding under Ino
Hi all !
If you've seen my recent breeding log, then you've see that my pair Ruby and Starlette have two new babies in the nest.
Ruby (mom) is a Lutino, and has never been bred before. I do not know what she is hiding under her yellow feathers.
Starlette (dad) is a Fallow Rec. Pied. Also his first time being bred.
BOTH babies are showing to be rec. pied. So, this would mean that Ruby is also a rec. pied under her Ino feathers. BUT, if i have this correct, she could also be SPLIT for rec. pied? That would still produce pied babies....with a chance of a regular green female too.
Since there are only two babies in this clutch, (and don't yet know if they are male or female) then it's almost impossible to say if she's masking Rec. Pied or split to Rec. Pied.
Do I have all that straight?
