Update on strangely marked albino (Ongoing Thread)
I was the one who posted about an albino with a brown 'eyepatch' marking. Well, it disappeared when she maulted, right? Now, she's finishing her mault, going out of breeding condition, very very few pin feathers, shedding less e.t.c. And I just looked in the cage, her singing as she sometimes does, and what do I see but faint light brown throat spots. They weren't there before, there is nothing at all in or around her cage to have rubbed the colour onto herself. I'll do my best to get a picture, they still are afraid of the camera, they're so faint it might not even come up but it's defiantely there and noticable. Maybe the brown spot that went away with her mault was actually a natural marking? Reading on the guides there can be faint markings, but I'm not sure. They're throat spots for sure.
I did recently start giving them Trill brand veggie mix ins and Trill brand fruit/nut mix ins for small parrots in a separate bowl to their normal mix, and she has been eating a little of that, but not much at all, and it doesn't have anything that could rub brown as throat spots. The page on albino says the markings can be on their head and wings, it doesn't say about the throat. Could she be hiding a pied gene?
I tried using the go-pro. They kept as far away from it as they could get. On Christmas I'm setting up a new cage, I'll be taking pics then, including of them out of the cage. I'll have to hold them so I can get pics then. =P If this thread has been locked by then I'll post them on my profile.
Thank you. I'll keep trying until I get some good ones! It's going to take a fair while, I think. Being afraid of it, she fluffs up her cheeks when she sees it and moves away until it's gone. When she fluffs up her cheeks you can't see them. No matter what I'll get good ones around Christmas, though, with their new cage! =D
I'm just gonna pull them out and take pics of them anyway in their new carry cage. Somehow the pet shop keeps having troubles with the suppliers, even though I paid off their new cage at the end of November it's still not in and won't be till next year. >_< It's 4 am though right now.
