    Are you sure the eggs are fertile, from these two? Looks like you have two girls to me.

    With the other pair in the same cage there will be no way of knowing which is the father. Since Sunny is lutino which is a sex linked mutation there will not be any lutinos unless her mate is split for lutino. Dot is a recessive pied so his chicks won't be recessive pieds unless his mate is split to recessive pied. The chicks will be all normal greens unless the birds are carrying hidden genes.

    Note for mighty mouse: Dot's cere is pink because of his mutation, it will never go blue like most males.

    We have had our second baby hatch, mum is very good at letting me look in at the nest box. She even licks my fingers LOL not bad for a 'untamed' bird.
    Baby number 2 is a normal black eyed bub.

    Re: dot and sunnies baby thread

    So sad to hear you lost your first two babies. I have babies right now that look very similar to yours - white down and pink skin. The father is a light green recessive pied (his cere also tends to look like a female)and mom is a sky blue grey wing. All four babies seem to be getting all yellow feathers so far - I was expecting visual green budgies. Any thoughts? Also, how did you know your first little one was an ino? What are your other babies like?

    Re: dot and sunnies baby thread

    What precious photos

    That baby is a lutino, so we know your male is split to lutino (as it's a recessive gene that both parents need, I'm pretty sure) and you could also get normal greens (as both parents are inthe green series) and if your hen is split recessive pied, you could also get recessive pieds (like Dot). Also, if both birds are split to blue you could get blue series bubsa swell
