Thank you Peter, could you please tell me the difference between light faze genes and dark faze or are they connected, I have a number of both and do not know should I keep them seperate. Laurie.
This is something I puzzled my head over. So far I believe they are both belonging to the same gene. The difference is only individual. I noticed this difference in normals as well.
Combinations of Fallow and Cinnamon results in a Lutino looking bird.
I don't have experience with fallow kakariki, but... in cockatiels there are 2 mutations I know of that have variable expressivity, this meaning the same mutation can result in different shades of color depending on the individual.
One of them is edged (dominant silver), and the ohter one ash-fallow (recesive silver).

Hi Peter and Pabloc,Merry christmas, I have 4 what I call light faze fallows 3 hens and 1 cock, and 4 dark faze 2 cocks both pied and 2 hens not pied.all have a red eye with a destinct iris. My lutinos have a clear red eye ,but they are comming from the same pairs of birds. It is all very confusing. Iam breeding them to normals to see if i can sort the genes out at all.Regards Laurie.

Peter, you are right on every point. The parents are pied/ BEC cock to a cinnamon pied /BEC Hen. and pied cock/BEC /cinnamon to a yellow BEC hen. Both pairs throw fallow light and dark, and both pairs throw lutino,both throw yellow BEC as well as pieds and cinnamon pieds,quite a mix.
