Default Mutation Confusion... Explaination needed...

I finally have two Ino's Cocks (Green series) and one of them was finally old enough to breed this season...

I decided to mate Gallio (Lutino Cock) with Juane (Lutino Hen) they hatched 3 ino chicks in their first clutch...

But I was shock to watch their pin feathers come in - cause they are all Albino's!! Can you talk me through the genetics of that one... I'm seriously confused...

I thought only green series ino's could create green series ino not blue series...

I'm guessing that the cock must be split for blue - although his parents were said to be a visual lutino and a split for lutino normal green...

Can you talk me through it!! Really wanted to breed Lutino's and thought I'd cracked it, only to be foiled!!

Sounds perfectly normal to me lol.

Both parents will be split for blue, which has likely remained hidden among green parents for 1 to infinite generations.

Thats the great thing about splits You think you have it sorted then POP! Out jump some greywings or dilutes or blues lol.

Let them go for a second round, you're just as likely to get all lutinos this time round haha.

Just for kicks the odds for this pair would be:

25% blue (albino), 50% green (lutino) split blue, 25% green (lutino)

So theoretically they should only produce 1 albino and 3 lutinos for every four chicks produced lol.

Grrr.... I want my Lutino's!!

I wish my Birds understood genetics - they had three chicks!! I would have appreciated at least one Lutino, not all Albino's!! Where is the fairness in that!! ha ha

On the upside... I have have breed this season a beautiful Lacewing Male and Female, which confirms that what I thought was a Violet Fallow, is indeed a visual Lacewing or I couldn't have gotten my handsome wee boy... It's a good breeding year - 19 budgie chicks in the nest at the moment...12 eggs due to hatch within the week... Cockatiels fledging at the moment, my Turquiosines hatched out 5 chicks and my Bourkes are sitting on 8 fertile eggs!!

I adore spring... Even if our weather has been crazy this year!!

The winds have been terrible lately... I've made roll down plastic covers for all my aviaries, so they live in a subtropical environment even when it's raining outside... I also breed Button Quails and all the other breeders that I usually compete with to sell, are complaining that their hens aren't even sitting - so I'm able to sell them easy peezie...

yep both parents mustve had one blue gene which was being overtaken by one green gene. then both parents passes on the blue gene to the young rather than the green gene. the young then have two blue genes with no green ones, so they are blue series.
