Post: What Mutation??? (Creamino Offspring)
Posted by Melissa on 5/03/08
Hi. I don't have any pictures, but I will attempt to
describe the birds.
I have four babies from a Creamino pair (don't know
anything of their genetic background).
Two babies look like normal Creamino's: light yellow, with
the white rump with the ice blue sheen, melon colored
forehead (though not pronouced, they are babies).
One of them is darker yellow. I'd say in between a Lutino
and a Creamino. His tail had a light yellow tip and after
that it is dark like his body. His "bib" is the
same "creamy white" (don't know how else to describe it)
as the two previous babies, but he does not have a fleck
of melon pink on his head. His rump and flights are the
same color as the two revious babies.
The other one, has a body color very very similar to the
Creamino. But if you look very close, it has the
slightest tinge of mustard yellow. This is very slight,
almost not noticeable. His flights have a dusting of what
looks like beige color, also very slight. His rump is
very light ice blue. Thing of the color that the normal
Creamino's rump shines... make it a tad darker and this is
the color (not just an irridescence). His tail has light
brown where the black would be. He is still young, so I
can't see the whole tail yet. He also does not have any
peach at all on his forehead.
So what are the last two? (Oh their eyes and feet and
beak are the same as the Creamino). I was thinking
Cinnamino maybe for the one with the brown in his tail...
but can't find a pic to compare. But I have no idea for
the darker yellow one.
Thanks for any insight and if I can get a pic I will post
