    Red face Possible Mutation? Help!

    It appears that the baby number 1 has pink eyes.

    What might that mean. His mom and dad are standard grey cockatiels.

    Well from my experience pink eyes mean lutinos. I have a standard grey dad and a cinnimin mom and so far we have gotten 2 greys 1 lutino and another that im not sure of, it looks like a nomal grey with alot of yellow in its body. Hope that helps.

    Yup! It means your birdy baby could fledge out to be a lutino. Look for yellow or white pins. Now.. since neither or your parents are showing this mutation, it means your chick recieved this gene from Dad and this chick is automatically a girl. If your chick pins out with cinnamon colored feathers, its a fallow and it means that like the pied, both parents have to carry the gene. Fallows, (Like my Apache) also have red eyes at birth but the eyes often times darken to a deep ruby as they get older that is difficult to see without the correct lighting.

    Both babies have pink eyes, and neither of their pins are showing any color to this point.

    Girls eh?
