Mommy is lutino and Daddy is cinnamon. How can I tell the gender? Now I'm getting even more exxcited. Adam our smallest is having some trouble with his crop it is not emptying. Sometimes it will other times it doesnt. Been giving him pedialyte and some baby apple sauce.

what is the bowl of water for?
That's a good point. I didn't even notice that...too busy falling in love :love:... I'd be careful with it being so tall and full since they can easily fall in and drown. Try giving them a shallow dish instead.

Boyfriend keeps water in there for the moisture I think. However I just went and told him to take it out, thanks

Paula
Lutinos and Cinnamons are sex linked so for a female to be produced the male parent must be at least split for the mutation. For a male to be produced the male parent must be at least split for the mutation and the female parent must visually show the mutation. Females cannot be split for sex-linked mutations, only the males. You have no way of knowing what mutations, if any, a male may be split to unless you know what mutations the birds parents were.

Basicley i think with a Cinnamon dad and a Lutino mom youy get Males grey-split to, and Females-Cinnamon...be happy.

I am so sorry to hear about Adam :(
They would only be grey split if dad doesn't have any hidden genes in him,
the babies look like lutinos to me is that correct Paula? If they are then dad would have to be split to lutino and mom is visually lutino so they could be either or

For example my Minnie is a lutino her parents were pied's there for the lutino was hidden on dad's side because a female cannot be split to and her mom was not visually lutino so that would make my Minnie a female.

I think you're supposed to keep water in there for humidity which they need so their skin doesn't dry out.

With a lutino mum and a cinnamon dad the lutino babies could be either sex. If just the dad had've been lutino, or neither parent lutino, then they would be girls.
