Default Producing White-Faced Cinnamon

I have grey white face, grey white-face pied, grey white face pearl, cinnamon and cinnamon pearl. I do not have any cinnamon white face. Is it possible to produce Cinnamon White-faced with any combination? In Pakistan we have small gene pool of good cockatiels. We import oft and on but the gene pool is not big. Therefore I thought if it is possible to produce a white face cinnamon out of my birds?

Yes it is. But you didn't tell us the genders and that is important since cinnamon is sex linked

I'm not familiar with genetics and all of that (i'm learning slowly!) but i'm pretty sure these guys are going to need specific genders for their mutations before they can help you with pairing for the desired result. You might want to compile a list of your birds stating their age (appropriate breeding age is also important), mutation and gender

To get wf cinnamon, both parents need to be either visual or split to wf and the father will need to be cinnamon as well. It is possible, but it will take you a couple generations of breeding (so a couple years) to get the results you want. You'll want to work with two pairs, so that you get babies that aren't related and can be bred together. In one pair, the male should be the visual cinnamon. In the other pair, the female should be the visual cinnamon. This way you get visual cinnamon hens that can be bred to males that are split cinnamon. Since none of your cinnamons are wf, make sure that at least one parent you use in each pairing is a visual wf. This will give you the building blocks for what you want in the 2nd generation pairing.

Default Supplementary Question

Thanks Roxy. I am an old Exhibition Budgerigar and Exhibition Finch fancier and I am in these two for last over forty years and regularly enter them in Shows. I am considered an expert in breeding these two and understanding their genetics fully. I took up interest in Cockatiel only recently and so have to learn a lot. I have been attending Cockatiel Shows here in Pakistan which are judged by European or American Judges but so far I have not shown my own birds. Today I managed to acquire a Cinnamon White-faced male, which a dealer had just imported from Holland. I only have a white-faced Cinnamon Pearl female, which is a very god specimen. If I mate it with my White- face Cinnamon Male, what would be likely result? Any white-face Cinnamon chick likely? I bother more about the quality of the bird and I am not so much concerned about the color but the color mutation has its own charm. I understand that many things that I am asking might have been discussed on this Forum but I hope old members will bear it out with me. Happy New Year.

If you are an expert in genetics, then all you really need to know is that white face is recessive, and cinnamon is sex linked. White face is in Cockatiels what blue is in green birds, and I believe budgies also have A cinnamon mutation?

Default Cinnamon Whiteface Revisited

In Budgerigars, definitely there is a Cinnamon mutation and is sex-linked and is co-dominant with Ino. If this is same in Cockatiels then it would mean that my Whiteface Cinnamon male mated with my Whiteface Cinnamon Pearl hen will have all F1 Cinnamon Whiteface split for Cinnamon Pearl, provided the parents do not have any common hidden recessive gene. Is my deduction correct?

These stickies contain more info about cockatiel genetics.
The only issue I see with breeding the two together is smaller, weaker babies. It is generally not recommended to breed two of the same mutation together for this reason, plus it can cause a higher death rate in the nest. Usually, the best breeding pair is a visual bred to a split. Cinnamon is sex-linked, meaning only males can be split to it, females have to be visual to carry the gene. That being said, there is nothing with test breeding the pair to see if they do produce good healthy stock. All the babies will be cinnamon from this pair, so it will be difficult to sex them until after their first molt.

Default Whiteface Cinnamon or Normal Cinnamon

Will they be normal Cinnamon or White-face Cinnamon?
