Here are three cockatiel types or cockatiel genetic mutations in the Cockatiel parrots. It all started with the Normal (wild type) cockatiel. While their plumage is similar to our Cinnamon mutation, the Fallow usually has a higher intensity of yellow pigments. ", followed by 751 people on Pinterest. Creamface, pastelface, and whiteface are three recessive mutations that make up the parblue, or partial-blue, series. birds.....and here I refer to the pastelface/whiteface There is still some combination.....it is more common and desirable to pair them with a These are Sex-Linked, Recessive, and Dominant. Some yellow areas, usually on neck and head. is basically reserved for the Whiteface family of genes that doesn't The Sex-linked mutations are Pearl. whiteface gene occupying the space on its matching chromosome. Lutinos have an inherent gene for baldness (the bald area behind the crest). Please make sure you have printed and read this checklist fully. In a Whiteface Pied, all Yellow areas are replaced with White. A male pearl will lose it's pearling and return to normal colorization after it's first molt. For an offspring to be produced that shows a recessive mutation both of the parent birds must be at least split to the mutation. These are Sex-Linked, Recessive, and Dominant. visually pastelface chick as will the combination of one whiteface Cockatiel White Face. written as Pastelface split to Whiteface to differentiate them from recessive mutations that consist of only the normal wild-type gene Each bird contains many matching pairs of chromosomes There is one exception to this in that a bird that is split to pied will generally have yellow or white (in the case of whiteface) markings on the back of the head. Two pastelface genes will give a This gives us a stunning bird with paler more peachy coloured cheek The Dominant mutations are Dominant Silver and Dominant Pastel-Face COCKATIEL COLOR GENETICS: THE BASICS .
They are the Whiteface quality, the Pastelface, or the first wild-type ordinary dark quality. Males develop a yellow face mask after first molt; females do not. You have no way of knowing what mutations, if any, the parents may be split to unless you know what mutations their parents were. The Pastelface Cockatiel and prevent the pied from expressing itself. regulation of psittacin or yellow family pigments production Two normal White-faced were bredandoneofthe babies inthe clutch developed "pastel" colored cheek patches anda yellow head. The Pastelface Cockatiel gene is an individual from the ‘Blue’ group of qualities or also called the Whiteface family in cockatiels. This is my new baby cockatiel, he is almost 4 months old and is a pastelface pearl male cockatiel. Males develop a white face mask after first molt; females do not. The Dominant mutations are Dominant Silver and Dominant Pastel-Face COCKATIEL COLOR GENETICS: THE BASICS . When there is a matching paired chromosome then the wild-type gene will be dominant In the fallow the melanin is changed from dark grey to a tannish, pastel brown color with heavy yellow suffusion in the feathers and diluted pigments in the beak, feet, and eyes.
