5.2 Secondary Mutations

In this final chapter of our tutorial we will list secondary mutations that are a combination of two or more primary mutations. Knowing which primary mutations combine together to create a particular secondary mutation is important to calculate genetic outcome using both the Punnett squares method and the genetic calculator. For example, albino is a combination of Blue and Ino, when both mutations are visually present together we get a visual albino. Following is a list of common names for ringnecks and the primary mutations that are involved in each. Please note that most of these names and combinations are common to budgerigars, lovebirds and some other species.

  3. How does one tell the difference between double and single factor grey, or can you without breeding? I just bought a grey turquoise and I'm not sure how to enter her in the genetic calculator.

    1. It is not possible to tell if the bird is SF or DF grey. Only test breeding will tell. TO enter the mutation in genetic calculator select blue and then SF or DF Grey.

  4. SO creating albino in african peach face is not possible due to there is no true blue bird. But creamino + Turquoise (blue with white face) will create all male offspring to be split to Turquoise ino again take the first male off spring + Turquoise ino will make the 90% white bird right
