Re: GCC Identifying Mutation as chicks

I have just realized that I think my Turquoise is a yellow sided Turquoise. She has a light beak and light feet and yellow on her wings. I would provide a photo but we had a cold snap right as they were building their nest and she pulled out all her chest feathers and some of her back feathers to line the nest. They are growing back but she looks like a typical new parent who hasn’t showered in who knows how long. Lol

Re: GCC Identifying Mutation as chicks

Do you have any old photos of her? Or even tail shots? Even a face shot could help!

If both parents are yellowsides, then that might explain why all the chicks are yellowside... in which case, you'd need to DNA sex them to figure out gender! LOL

Re: GCC Identifying Mutation as chicks

Okay I have a few photos to share:

Dad, the Yellow Sided Green Cheek in the middle (Cheeky), and mama the Turquoise, possibly Yellow Side Turquoise (Ripley) on the far right.

Re: GCC Identifying Mutation as chicks

Yes, absolutely 100% certainty she is a yellow sided turquoise. A favorite of mine!

Re: GCC Identifying Mutation as chicks

Thank you for putting up with all my questions.

So, they will be Yellow Sided Green Cheeks, but does she pass on any of her Turquoise as non visual? Is it a 50/50 chance, or if they are yellow sided then that took over the Turquoise?
