    whiteface lutino

    hi there, i was thinking of buying a cockatiel down the road
    the parents are

    whiteface lutino (albino) female and a
    whiteface male

    she said the chick they produced is a male whiteface pied split for whiteface lutino (albino)

    so would this be true?

    correct........ if the albino had be the father it would also had been split to albino, but if the chick was a girl then she would´ve been albino visually.....

    so yes that info ir correct Whiteface split to albino....... the pied might be because if non of the parent are pied they should be split to pied......

    A whiteface cannot be split to Whiteface.

    The parents had to be split to Pied or one of them was Pied to give you a Whitefaced (Pied). Lutino is a sex linked gene and scince the mother was a Whitefaced Lutino your cock bird would be split to Lutino.

    So he is a "Whiteface Pied split to Lutino". He is carrying WF & Lutino so you would have to breed him to something carrying a Whitefaced gene. It could be anything but must have Whiteface. All WF Lutinos you get, will be females because Lutino is sex linked. I would try to find a Whitefaced Pied for him. From this half of your female chicks would be Whiteface Lutino Pieds.

    If you have anything else to ask, please do
