OK so I have some interesting feathers from a friend of mine. These are from a normal pearl male. His feathers have a greenish tint to them and we were wondering if this meant anything.
Its not yellowish, this is a greenish color.Singerboy has some yellowish feathers like this and he is split to pearl.
Enigma, its along the same lines so technically its not thread-jacking at all! I'm suspecting emerald but this bird is also split to cinnamon as well (mother was a visual cinnamon) SO that could be what this is.Is this mutation related? As far as I know, Sunny is split pied and possibly white face. His parents were lutino and cinnamon, and although his eyes don't reflect wine colored, he does have a few stray cinnamon-looking feathers.
That's from high levels of something..that's what Susanne said on an old thread--it causes yellow pigmentation to be seen on the wing bars. Luna had it when he was younger. I don't really think it's caused by anything though.I have sort of a similar question, so I hope it's okay to post it here. I've recently noticed that a few of Sunny's feathers in his white wing bar have a yellowish sheen to them, only in sunlight. My first reaction was to panic over it being due to liver issues, but it's SO slight that I can't even take a pic of it accurately -- it really is a sheen, not the actual feather's color.
That makes sense. I wandered how it came to look greenish. So a split cinnamon mixed with pearl can cause this? That's good to know!Visualize splatter painting with an airbrush some yellow on a piece of paper and then going back over it with some grey, and a tiny amount of black
