    Are these eye ring lovies? There are albinos in these species, but not in peachfaced. If it is peachfaced it could be lutino, they have red eyes and yellow fethers.

    Before the babies eyes opened was there a dark eyeball behind the skin or was it pink? Australian Cinnamons (Pallids) have plum colored eyes. A Lutinos eyes would have looked different from your other babies eyes even before they opened.

    Can you see rump feathers? An Australian Cinnamon like Mom would have a Blue Rump, wheras a Lutino would have a yellow rump.

    Your bird is an Ino. Unless both parents are split to blue then it is lutino and most definitely a hen
