    Assuming you are certain they are males, you could pair these
    birds with any green series bird that you might like. If you
    want to know the sex of the babies without having to guess, an
    Australian Cinnamon hen would be ideal. If either male carries
    the AC gene in addition to the Lutino, you would have
    splitcinnamoninos. Combined with an AC hen you would know the
    offspring by their mutation. Males would be splitcinnamoninos
    and females would be Lutino.
    You really don't know what your males are split to unless you
    breed them.
    Blue series birds are another possible combination too, again
    based upon what the males might be split to.
