I want you to look at these two pictures and tell me what you think. I believe that this hen is an YF lutino. Do you see that the face has a brighter yellow as the rest of the body?
I've look up on her genetics - she is a daughter of a lutino (the father was a grey spangle split ino)
The mother of this baby was bred form a YF cobalt and a green RP - so she could be a YF as well!
I know that they are colony bred and that one can't be sure of the parents, but that is how I have it.
Here are the pics:

My creamino Chiffon looked a little like that before the first molt. After her first molt her body looks mostly yellow with a whitewash look.
Yours is a pretty bird.

Craemino is a possibility, but wouldn't the feathers be white when it started to grow??

Not necassarily. When I got mine the feathers looked white in the store under their lights. As soon as I got her home I noticed yellow all over her under my lighting. As she aged the yellow got stronger.

Thank you all! I've never thought that it could be an albino - thought it was a lutino. So I have to go back to the parents to look at their mutations.
