I did a bad thing.. Kinda (:

Blah, I love my flock and I love the dynamic they've settled into. There were some issues with the conures being around the cockatiels early on, especially out in the aviary, but its all been working out so great recently. Obviously, none of the conures are left outside when I'm not there, but its good to know theres some neutrality between them.

But then I did the thing! I let myself inquire about a super cute ad I found, and suddenly four days later, boom.

This is Yoda, as far as I can tell she is a whiteface lutino, and 100% a girl. Based on the other siblings and the parents, there are apparently four different alternatives to what she could be (posted the picture below) but meh, I love her regardless. She's three months old, my second baby cockatiel ever (after Bird seven+ years ago), and such a sweetheart. Wings are clipped pretty badly, she drops like a rock, no gliding at all, but loves to chill on my shoulder.



She looks a bit ratty at the moment, her tail is mussed from landing awkwardly every time she flies and her wings are a bit butchered.



Being goofy.




Okay then genetics, just because its something I love learning about. Father is WF Grey split Cinnamon, Lutino, Pearl and mom was a WF Cinnamon split Pied. Siblings were another WF Lutino, WF Cinnamon, WF Cinnamon Pearl and two WF Grey. The owner and her daughter had no clue about genetics, but it was simple enough to figure out parent splits based on the babies. So putting the two parents into a calculator, these are all the combinations involving WF Lutino. Either thats all she is or everything else is muted/hidden by all the white-ness. The percentages listed are from all possible offspring from the parent pair.

You look, but you never, ever, EVER call the ad

She's a cutie, like an angel.

Anna, seriously! I know.. Ask one question and you're done for ;p no escaping. But thanks (: I love her in all her scruffiness. The parent birds were beautifully kept but the babies were clipped, getting into everything and rough housing a bit. Looking forward to seeing her adult plumage come in, she's a bit of a duck butt at the moment, lol.

Kayla, its one of my favorite mutations too, but always one I never imagined myself getting. Bit of a dream come true with her, and I was so excited to find out she was female too, instead of the waiting/DNA test game. Thanks (: of course she can't be with them yet but there is already some across the house flock calling going on.

I have never seen a WF Lutino in person anywhere around where I live. I have seen a White Face Pied once which was gorgeous! I just love White Face 'Tiels

There are so many different cockatiel variations out there, the lack of color entirely is just lovely to me. And aw, she was part of one big WF family, should have gotten pictures for you (: it really is such a beautiful mutation.
