    Tequilla is a normal wild color, Shooter and Kiwi are both seagreens. You can tell a seagreen from a dutch blue by the fact that the part of the beak closest to the face is pink rather than yellow.

    As far as lights or mediums or double factors or anything like that, I don't know.

    I never heard a peachface called a wild one... I like that because they are wild ones

    Wow, I didnt know you had 3 lovies Tracie... you need to post us some more pictures of your flock because they are all adorable. I admired Kiwi on Cheeps post but I never knew about the other two cuties.

    Re: Help with Mutations

    Both hens are american cinnamon seagreens. As to how they came out way...I'd have to know about the parents.

    If both parents were green birds, both were split to blue and daddy was split to american cinnamon.

    If one parent was a dutch blue and one a whitefaced you'd get seagreens and american cinnamons if the father was visual or split.

    You breed, correct? What color babies do you get from these pairs? Just curious.... I kinda remember having this talk and your male was split to a thing or two.

    Re: Help with Mutations

    Oh and I was wondering about their feet? Tequilla has grey feet, while Kiwi and Shooter have pink feet.... Same with the babbies...The green and Blue babies had greay while the yellows had pink. What does this means?

    Re: Help with Mutations

    Yep, Tequilla is split for blue and Australian cinnamon it looks like.Which blue he is split to is hard to determine looking at the bubs. At least for me it is, I am horrible at telling what series blue a bub is without using the parents mutations as hints.

    All your cinnamons will be females, all males will be split for american cinnamon , aussie cinnamon or maybe both! Depending on if your male is split dutch blue or white faced your blue bubs are either seagreen & dutch blue or seagreen & whitefaced blue. And your female aussie cins will be seagreen aussie, either whitefaced or dutch blue aussie and reg green series aussie. There is a way to tell which series blue your aussie bub are I am just no good at it. I can't tell until they have their adult coloring in and then I check their beak color. Mainly pink it's a whitefaced, mainly horn colored it's a dutch blue, and about half pink/half horn you have a seagreen.

    And if you are unsure which of your aussie bubs are blue or green series....I'll use the 2nd pic you posted of the babies for reference. The more yellow bub on the wooden perch is a green series aussie cinn. The bright yellow is how they look if they are green series. The pale, creamy yellow on the rope perch is a blue series aussie. All blue series sex linked birds (creamino, aussie and am cinns) will look more pastel and creamy. All green series will be bright and vivid.


    Now, about the feet color...Sex linked birds have lighter feet. Amercian cinns, like shooter, kiwi, & my Baboo have cinnamon colored feet. Australian sinns and lutinos and creaminos will have pink feet. All others should have black-ish feet.

    Another well to help ya tell if you have a cinnamon is to take a look at their flights. American cinnamons have brownish, cinnamon flights, aussies have grey flights, and inos have white. All other ill be black with the exception of pieds which may be black and white, or (insert other flight color here) and white.
