If only the male is wf, you will not get wf babies. All the babies will be split to wf and can be paired to a visual wf to get visual babies. It's going to take you two to three generations to really get the birds you want.

The way I read it both parents would be whiteface therefore all chicks will be whiteface as well.
On never mind...lol you recommended getting a nonwhiteface to keep genes strong... oops

He doesn't want just the wf, he wants a wf cinnamon. He currently only has cinnamons or wfs so the besides the new bird he acquired I believe. So with that, the babies he gets from this bird and any of the females he has, will be visual of one mutation and split to the other he wants. To keep it going, he's going to have to breed babies to the ones he has. The best idea would be to use two pairs to get the splits and visuals he wants, then pair the babies together to the visuals he's looking for.

you can use a virtual breeder .here is the link. http://kirstenmunson.com/cockatiels/virtual-breeder/ I've used it so much that now I can calculate the offsprings no problem and dont need breeder any more..but it helped me so much to understand how genetics works

This is an old thread, but since it just came back to life:

Breeding a cinnamon male to a whiteface female (pair #1) will give you this result in the first generation: all sons will be grey split to cinnamon and whiteface and all daughters will be cinnamon split to whiteface.

Breeding a whiteface male to a cinnamon female (pair #2) will give you this result in the first generation: all sons will be grey split to cinnamon and whiteface and all daughters will be grey split to whiteface.

Breeding the children of pair #1 to the children of pair #2 will give you some visual cinnamon whiteface in the second generation.

The cinnamon mutation is the same gene in both cockatiels and budgies, and the lutino gene is also the same gene in both species. Whiteface is the same as the blue gene.

Cinnamon and lutino are NOT co-dominant, since they are completely different genes and co-dominance is something that occurs with different variations of the same gene. But cinnamon and lutino do interact with each other somewhat, because the way that cinnamon interferes with melanin production has an influence on what the lutino mutation does. I have more info here in my coloration mechanics article: http://www.littlefeatheredbuddies.co...cinnamonlutino
