    Kitty Im under the impression that in order to get a
    whiteface, both of the parent birds have to have some
    whiteface in them. Whiteface is a recessive gene. If you
    paired up a white face, lets say with a pearl pied, you would
    get no whitefaces if there is no whiteface history in the
    pearl pied. Now if the pearl pied had some whiteface in her,
    then you would have the possibility of getting whiteface babies.

    Hope this helps.
