ok so i have set up 2 breeding pairs. the first one who are incubating eggs are tweety and princess. Tweety is the ****. i have no clue what he is. i've been trying to figure him out but i cant. Princess the hen is an Albino. she has red eyes and is only white. no hint of yellow at all. (some of the photos are older)

Tweety:




Princess


This is my second pair. Bebe the **** and Kiwi the hen.

Bebe




Kiwi




i also have 2 other ones. im wary on breeding them because i got them at the same time and i have a feeling they are brother and sister. plus they are still too young. Hope i think is a ****. but his cere wont turn blue. Faith is the hen.

Hope




Faith




thankyou for all your help. i know there are a lot of pictures. i dont know what type of angle you need. thanks!

im not too sure but i will take a guess.. :)
Tweety i think is an opaline light green dominant pied
Princess is an albino
Bebe is a sky blue or cobalt dominant pied
Kiwi is a yellow face Type 2 greywing opaline
Hope im not to sure..maybe a double factor dom pied or if no iris rings a recessive pied
Faith i think is a double factor resesive pied

i think there write if not sorry :)

OK I am not any good at mutations but I think that breeding faith and hope together might be a little hard since I think they are both females. LOL But all your birds are beautiful.

well from one of the websites i looked at for mutations. they said that there was a pied that the males cere stays pink.the bird as the example looked like hope. im not sure. i never really looked in it. hope is as old as faith and faiths has already changed. so im not too sure. :confused: thanks tammy

a ressecive pieds cere stay's a translusant pink when male, if its female it will turn brown like other mutations..
here's one of my birds that has the typical pink cere

After a mist bath :XD:

im sure he's a double factor ressecive pied and if he cere looks like that he is a male :) i would say lutino (my first thought) but i say the faided black marks on his wings but most his body colour is yellow thats why he's double factor.. make sure the brother and sister (if they are) don't mate as it can cost the babies resulting in deformities and all sorts, good luck with your two pair and i hope the eggs Tweety and Princess have are all fertile.

Tweety is an opaline dominant pied light green
Princess is an albino
Bebe is a dominant pied cobalt
Need a picture of Kiwi’s back to be sure but I think she is an opaline greywing
The next picture is a type 2 yellow face opaline greywing sky blue
Is the next picture a younger shot of the same bird?
Hope looks like a recessive pied & Faith looks like a double factor dominant pied but would need better pictures to be sure of either of them. They both look like females

the middle picture of kiwi is a very older picture. i just think she is cute in that one. the first of her is from like last week. here are better pictures of hope and faith

Faith (i went crazy on her pictures because she was being really good and i like the other pictures i got of her. i like the picture of her on the floor here. she is usually swaqking when she sees my hand)





Hope




are those better pictures?

I'll stick with what I said before about their mutations except that if Faith does not develop iris rings she could be a combination of dominant and recessive pied instead of double factor dominant. Hope looks male in the new pictures
