Ahh ok! I know what you mean now. I got these wooden blocks as floor toys for the tiels a long time ago and I found out they leak color as well. Babi ended up with two pink tiels too because of a pink ladder she had for them...It happens...:blush:

Haha, Ive got a albino Budgie who gets a multi colored face after she get s a drink or takes a dunk in the water dish and then goes and climbs all over the playgym

then earlier today we were in with the birds and I saw Crash and violet my normal lookin budgies who have white faces -- There faces were Yellow, I couldn't fiqure out why for a few mins

we thought perhaps they were matureing and were actually yellow face violets

and boy did i feel dumb when I realized what it was, I saw bob (dominate blue pied opaline, with a yellow tinge to his face, and tweety who's face is white he/she is a dom. blue pied also had a tinge of yellow) now i knew there was no way 4 of my white faced budgies were turning into yellow faces

Then i remembered my boyfriend took the pinapple shapped cuttlebone/ mineral block thing and grounded it up and we've been adding it to thier food because none of them seemed to use it like they did the cuttlebones, and we're out of cuttlebones at the moment

then it dawned on me That's why their faces ARE YELLOW :p the pinapple is Yellow and we turned it into a powder and sprinkle it on thier food and mix it in

so there was that mystery solved

LOL You I have two pink whiteface lutinos! They still are a bit pink and really pink when they get wet. I am thinking it will go away once they molt? One of them has a big pink spot by her leg, that's how we tell them apart right now.. :huh: LOL

I am sure it will go away eventually, Minnie was pink for the longest time and it didn't matter that I tried to wash it off...lol but it went away seemed like it took forever though :D
