I know in the normals the male gets blue on his head, but not sure about any of the mutations.

I believe, but am not certain, that the rubinos have to be dna'd.

I saw some baby bourkes today. The littlest only about 10 days old. They were so precious. The littlest has red eyes. I don't have any idea what their mutations will be. Two of them have grey heads. I will really enjoy watching them feather out.

Yes Rubinos need to be DNA & only when older do Bourke males show the blue. Juveniles are grey headed. :)
