Default Unknown mutations

Can anybody help me with the mutations of my cockatiels. I'm colour blind and am having trouble working out each of my birds mutations. Some i have a rough idea of. But not completely sure. TIA

Double factors of what? I'm not very good with silvers or anything like that, so I wouldn't be able to tell whether that's what they really were or not.

I have found out from the people that sold us some of the birds that the Whiteface Cinnamon pearl and the Whiteface Cinnamon split pied are both Double factor Whiteface.

What is double factor whiteface?? To be a whiteface you need to have the w/f gene from both parents and can only pass on w/f genes, so I don't understand what double factor w/f means

Still learning that one myself. From what I've read you can get a whiteface from split on both parents. Theses only produce whiteface cinnamon.

Double factor is not a thing in whiteface mutations. No such thing. I think what the previous owners are trying to say is that both birds are VISUAL whiteface (obviously lol) meaning that if bred together they will only produce whiteface babies. You breed either one of them to a normal bird and you will get a normal baby split to whiteface. Whiteface is a recessive mutation like pied and both parents have to carry the mutation, whether they are visual or split to it, to be able to have babies that are visual as well. So what they could mean is that their parents were also whiteface birds as well. But no, in cockatiels, there is no such thing as a double factor whiteface. Double factor is reserved for mutations such as silver, which I have never worked with.

These parents only produce whiteface cinnamon babies because they are both visuals of those two mutations. Honestly, I wouldn't pair them up myself, as there's too many similarities going on for my taste and I'd be worried about healthy babies in the nest.
