Iím trying to identify splits and maybe sex of some of these babies if possible and would appreciate any help in explaining differences. I have not named them yet so will refer to them by hatching order. I am aware of the advise not to pair like-to-like however these babies are bigger and better quality than their parents (imo).
1.0 natural cinnamon /blue(whiteface)
x 0.1 natural cinnamon opaline(pearl)
% from all 1.0
50.0% 1.0 natural cinnamon /opaline(pearl) blue(whiteface)
50.0% 1.0 natural cinnamon /opaline(pearl)
% from all 0.1
50.0% 0.1 natural cinnamon /blue(whiteface)
50.0% 0.1 natural cinnamon
Some thoughts and observations:
No. 1: Normal cinnamon
No. 2: Yellow blotches on neck (maybe split to pearl and therefore male).
No. 3: Cheek patch deeper red (maybe male)
No. 4: Paler yellow (split to whiteface or something else psittacine-altering)
1st had yellow down. Either 2nd or 3rd baby had pale yellow down (2nd I think). 4th must have had pale yellow down as well.
