New Mutation for Aussie Breeders by Kaka-riki
Date: Wednesday, November 29 @ New Zealand Daylight Time

After much careful planning and working with some of our plum eyed birds we have finally produced a genuine red eyed yellow bird. I believe this is what is known as the 'Lutino" by European breeders. I will post pics on the site once the bird starts to feather. It is about a week old now and sharing a box with 4 other siblings that are black eyed yellows.

We have also produced another young bird in the normals that is defianately darker in overall colour. I suspect this may be a Khaki mutation and am awaiting clarification from our Genetics expert
