    Roseicollis and periophtalmic ring

    Hi, for the first time in 5 clutches, all the chicks of the last clutch have a yellow half-periophtalmic ring, 2 females lutino and 1 green of unknown sex. I wonder if it can be a way to recognize if a bird is a bearer of the lutino mutation?

    What a "beautiful and gorgeous" little lovie!! I would certainly think there would be a way to recognize if a bird is a bearer of the lutino mutation. Have you done any research on lovie mutations? Not too long ago, I was on-line and found some information on lovebird mutations. I believe there is someone who wrote a book about them, and I believe I was on "Amazon" (not sure if you can get Amazon on your web service . . it is a retail store that has tons of books, as well as most any other item one would be looking for. See if you can serach "Amazon", and if you can access that website, then search on that site, under books, "Lovebird Mutations".

    You also might be able to find info on the web by searching "lovebird mutations".

    I am not educated about lovies, but I do know that you can trace lutino mutations for cockatiels, so I am sure you could get that information.

    I have no clue about genetics but some people here do know all about it but they do not come online all that often. I do have to say this little black beaked baby is adorable. I just love Lovebirds and especially the peachfaces babies.

    Thanks,

    Yes, I have access to Amazon and have few books about lovebirds.

    Lutino is a sex linked mutation and as both parents are green, only the father can be a bearer of lutino.

    The results for green/lutino x green are :

    - 25% green males
    - 25% green males / lutino
    - 25% green females
    - 25% lutino females

    So I can be 100% sure that the two lutinos are females. For the green, if this half "ring" shows a sign of bearing, it only can be a male, but I can't find proof of it anywhere.
    Anyway, I'm going to send feathers to a laboratory for a DNA test to be sure!

    My theory doesn't work, I received my results, 7 females and just 1 male
    I have one last couple in breeding, I'm just hoping for males this time

    Awww! I'm disappointed for you as well. To think you had 7 females in that clutch?? That really is unique! Better luck next time . . . hopefully!

    I had never noticed that ring before.... had a good look at my peach faced pair and the male has it but not the female.... another way of me being able to tell them apart
