THis is the first time mating old man. Old man is a vis whitefaced male with pied ticks COcoa is a visual cinnamon with pied ticks The pics below show the mom with the babies. The newest hatch, today, shows all white down with dark eyes. THe older chick has lighter down that the chicks I usually have more like a pale yellow. By the pics can you tell me what mutations are going on here? Thanks in advance for any and all advice :) As always, it is appreciated. If you need some better pics to help me out, let me know. THanks again :)

Well I do know the one with the white fuzz is definitely a white face baby. As far as the pale yellow.. unsure. I still have a hard time with eyes, so I'll let someone else with more experience comment on that too. :) Congratulations! Gorgeous little babies!

Pale yellow is an indication that it is split to WF, unless Momma bird is also carrying a split to PF (pastelface)....which the down will also look like this.

You can tell that Momma bird is split to WF by the light halo around the back edges of the cheek patch, and she also confirmed the split with the visual WF baby.
