Hello,

I have normal grey and pearl lutino pair unknown split and they have offspring lutino and normal grey (I think)

It's automatically the male parent have lutino gene?

Is it possible to gender the chicks?

Thanks!

Yes, the male is split to lutino. Since lutino is sex-linked, males have to be split or visual in order to have chicks for that mutation. Unfortunately, there is no way to tell what the chicks’ genders are based on the parents’ mutations. You would have to DNA them to know for sure.

Got it!

Thank you so much!
