If you are getting him a girl friend mabey you should get a pearl since they stay that way. Or get a pied if you are going to get him a guy friend. Spike is a pied :love:

Pearls are sex linked so you should be able to tell what they are by the parents not all Pearls are female and not all Pieds are male ;)

I just said guy for a pied because a male pearl would lose his pearling. Do you know what percent of pieds are males. I never heard that alot of pieds are male :confused: I thought pieds were not sex linked

nope your right pieds are not sex linked and not sure what percent of pieds are male :confused: I was just saying if he gets a pied there is no guarantee its a male it could be either or but a pearl he would know what it was if he is looking for a female friend or a male friend for Stretch :D

I can never effectively think of names until i've seen the bird. :p Everytime, before i get a new bird, i have a big list of names, and it usually ends up that i use one that wasn't even there. ;)

i,m 1 hour from london ontario here is the reply i got from my breeder tonight


Hi Allen, Please don't ask me about the mutations..: ) I am really lost in that department.. Mom is Pearl and Dad is Grey. From the last clutch last Christmas I got 1 Grey and 2 Pearls. I think the Pearls were female. They were really heavy pearled and the last time I heard from the person who got them they kept all their pearls.

Another breeder lost in the mutations department...:rolleyes:
Either way you'll have another couple of months before you can bring them home.
