Yellow face albino/creamino question
I've recently gotten into breeding budgies and am now trying to breed for the -ino mutations, instead of just whatever my pairs will throw.

I understand how to get albinos, lutinos, and even lacewings. But I'm stumped on how to sucessfully breed a creamino (or yellow face albino).

What combination of genetics would I need to get one?

I was thinking yellow face / albino x albino. But really, I have no clue...

I would guess a albino male and a blue yellow face female would produce a cremo. If you did this you would get... at least I think
100 albino females
normal males
and 50% yellow face

yes, your initial suggestion would work, but bridgets would be easier. just an albino cock and a yf blue hen.

gotchya! Didn't know if you would need the albino gene from both parents.

You only need the ino gene from the male to produce female ino chicks. If you want male inos you need the female to be ino and a male ino or a male that's split for ino.
