Have you had your male since he was a baby? If not, he may be a
Pearly. Upon maturity, male Pearly's lose their spots and appear
as a solid grey as in the normal wild type. He could also be
split to Pearl.
If he is a Pearl himself, all female babies will be pearly split
to white-face. All male babies will be normal grey split to white-
face and pearly.
If he is normal grey white-face split to pearly, female babies
will be either pearly split to white-face or normal grey split to
white-face. Male babies will be all normal grey split to white-
face with only a 50-50% chance of also being split to pearly.
It is hard to tell which he is from one clutch of 3. Hope this
