    looks like a cinamon pied pearl. very cute by the way. if it turns out to be male then he would lose all the pearling.

    Re: What kind of Tiel is my baby?

    So, after further investigation of the pictures that I posted eariler, I realized that they were not doing my baby justice, so I called in some backup... lol A friend of mine brought over her really cool digital camera and we were able to get some much better shots than the ones that I took with my camera-phone. See, the baby is yellow... REALLY yellow. Almost like a canary, and the pics that I had taken washed out the babys color. Also, it's wings are tan... not grey. I took a few of the baby next to my female with grey on her...so that you can sort of see the colouring better. so here goes....
    Maybe this will help determine the color/sex of the baby.. (it does not have white on it.. its all yellow but for some reason the camera flash washes out it's color and it appears white)

    The first few show the yellowing





    and these show the tan color well...





    thanks for all your help guys!

    Okay! Your baby is a Cinnamon Pearl Pied. Also, I'm not sure if you know or not but your baby is 100% female. Congrats!


    The parents are wrong, however. If you have pictures of them or can describe them I can help you with that as well.

    ! agree that the parents colors are incorrect - she stated lutino split cinnamon ( a female will never be split cinnamon - needs to be visual) and then lutino split WF.

    In that case - all the babies would have been lutinos.

    There needs to be a pearl and pied gene somewhere to product that baby. If mom is not a visual pearl or cinnamon, then dad is at least split, therefore making the baby a female.

    We need more info. Can you check with the breeder again to clarify the parents?

    I will have to post pictures of the mommy and daddy birds. The other bird in the picture is not the baby's mother. I just used her in the picture for color comparison.

    Cinnamon pearl pied. If the baby is a male, he will loose all the pearl markings and the light gray on the wings will just be light gray. Femal will keep all those pretty pearls.

    I know it's a female because you originally said the mother was a Lutino. Females cannot be split cinnamon, only males can be (This is the case for pearl too). If the female was a Lutino Pearl Cinnamon, then your baby can be a male. But most likely it is the father who was split cinnamon and pearl and therefore your baby is most likely a female.
