Well, we have a total of 5 babies. (and the hen has begun laying again). I believe out of the 5, 2 will be Lutinos. They have the bright red eyes and the pins coming in on the tail and wings are bright yellow. I am quite excited. The others will be Cinnamons (as far as I know). From the excellent info I hve gotten of this site, it appears that the adult male is a Fallow. The hen is definitely a Cinnamon. But, the colors coming in on the babies are different then the father. The father just has a red tint to his iris. These chicks have totally red red eyes.
I will take some photos of the chicks. I am not the best photographer in the world...I will warn you all ahead of time.
Congratulations with the chicks. The difference in eyecolour is imputed to that the eyes are not fully developed. Usually the iris starts to change in the 5-6 week and reaches full colouring around the end of the 4 month.
If lutino's are borned with red eyes ,changed the colour after a few weeks also dark ??
I have two birds and they are born with the red eyes , now there eyes colour is dark.
Are they now lutino or are they black eyes,I wonder ??
I know you have an yellow bird with red eyes.
How do you call that mutation ??
