Hi there! :) I'm a new user here and I would ask you an opinion about breeding. I have a female fallow budgie and I don't know how to breed her. Anyone could suggest me a perfect partner?

Welcome to the forum

Fallow is a recessive gene so if you want fallow chicks you will need to mate her to a fallow or a split fallow male.

If you contact a club in your area they might be able to tell you if there are any breeders of fallow budgies who could supply a male with the gene

It's a bit hard because I live in Italy :) Anyway is there anyone that could tell me if this mutation (fallow always) is dominant on ino like for example texas clearbody?

Fallow is either a recessive mutation or a sex-linked one. If you have a fallow with red eyes and no iris rings, this fallow is a recessive mutation. However, if you see red eyes with iris rings, you got yourself a sex-linked mutation.

Your fallow hen is a bit difficult to breed fallows, not until you get 2 generations of unrelated normals split for fallow.

My fallow has red eyes with iris ring so she is sex-linked. I'd like to know if this mutation results to be dominant on albino. Anybody knows?

I'm not a mutations expert, but I will offer an educated guess until an expert comes along.

Fallow and ino (which is sex-linked) are both recessive. If you pair a fallow with an ino, and neither one is split to the other mutation, you'll get 100% normals unless they're masking or split to other mutations.
