I got ET as a rescue. So I have no idea how old he is. Recently his eyes have started drooping and he's balding more behind his crest which I know is super common in lutinos. But I've also heard that it usually begins around a certain age. We are headed home from a vet exam with dr. Loudis of all pets animal hospital in ensinitas, and he checked out perfectly. Nothing is wrong with him internally or externally other than droopy eyes and balding.

Does anyone know around what age lutinos start showing those lutino overbred traits?

The way I understood it is that birds with a bald spot hatched out with it and feathered it in immediately.

Nobody can really tell you the age of your bird just by looking at it. What a vet may be able to do is give you a general guideline of where he's at:

Juvenile, Adult, or Geriatric.
