Hes the joey lookalike right? Is he the culprit for repeating most of Joeys noises ?

i would pair him with a normal grey split pied female or a whiteface split pied female. best not a pearl female as pearls tend to have bald spots when paired together. and because he is a visual pied, it would be best to pair him with a split pied. with breeding tiels, you want to avoid breeding the same mutations together because it can result in bald spots, weaker babies, smaller babies, and enhance other genetic faults. lutino and pearl are the biggest for bald spots.

because he is a pearl pied, he is a sex linked mutation. so if you pair him with a grey female, any pearl baby will be a girl and any grey will be a male. its easy sexing right there. but if you paired him with a pearl female, theyd all be pearls but this is not a good mix.

pairing with a split pied is better than a visual pied. because you dont want to pair the same mutations together. but a visual and a split is the best pairing you can do.

i suspect he is split whiteface as well based on the irregular streaky cheek patch, so either a split whiteface or a visual whiteface hen might bring you some whiteface babies.


but you are guaranteed pearls from him. but if the hen you pair him with does not carry the pied gene, you will only get babies split to pied. as pied is recessive you will need two parents carrying the gene. whiteface is also recessive where you need two parents carrying the gene to produce visual babies.

sex linked mutations are pearl, lutino, cinnamon, sex-linked yellowcheek, and maybe one other of a rarer mutation that i fail to remember. these if the mother is NOT these mutations, any of the babies you get of these mutations are female. only males can be split to sex linked mutations, females can only be visuals. the male can carry the hidden gene of all of these mutations... so its interesting.


the photo done with flash, where hes clinging to the aviary wall, i can see a red tint, he may be split cinnamon (sex linked) as well. can you take more photos of him with flash?
