Your bird needs to see a vet.
If he cannot move his head indicates there is a problem. How do you know he is not in pain?
Birds hide pain and illness very well. Just because he seems to be better, does not mean he is getting better.

For the albino and lutino pairing you would get all lutino/blue in both sexes, unless your lutino is /blue, then you would get albinos too.
Im not stupid but im a bit confused. With an albino and lutino, how do we get split blue babies?

How do you breed Creamino?

A friend and I got into a very deep discussion yesterday, and although we both breed, and have been doing so for years (him longer than I, although I have a better understanding of the colours and mutations) and we realised neither of us know the "proper" name for a creamino (if there is one) nor wo...

Re: What mutation is Papez?

I'd say your friend is right on the colour. Visually if you dont know the age, you cannot tell the sex, unless u want to wait the 3 years it can take for a males ring to come in, it is best to get it DNA sexed, but there will never be any way to tell the sex, unless it is a male, then you would know...

Re: Green Ringnecks head starting to turn blue...

Yip thats perfectly normal. Some males just get more of the blue on their heads than the others. My male is about 4 now, and has alot more blue on it than I have seen in pics, but have found on a few sites, including here, that its common with them, no special mutation :-)

They are wanting to introduce new blood lines to their breeding at the moment, but are more than happy to take a baby and wait for it to mature, as they are in no rush.

What does a normal Cinnamon Green look like?

Hi Guys! Interesting question, I realised we argued on here for ages about the colouring of my female, and decided on cinnamon green dom dilute first, which was corrected to Dom edged... What defines this? How do I know she is not a normal green cinnamon? In which case I would not be able to visuall...

Re: To clip or not to clip

There are advantages and disadvantages to both. I personally say, clip, just so you can build a better relationship, handle blue more etc etc. Remember, even if you clip, they will grow back and blue will have the freedom of flight again. When i tamed my male down from an aviary, but once he was mor...

Re: Cinnamon Dom edged female x Green male

Hi Johan,

Thanks for that, I actually read through that forum earlier this morning...

Recio, here is another question.

If I kept a young male, and bred him back with the cinnamon green dom edged female,
what would the outcome be? Cinnamon babies? Or just split cinnamons?

Another picture would be great, and I would love input from anyone else out there?

Just that a green pied usually has the normal green appearance with the pied markings.
Your bird is a mustardy yellow colour to start with, and not normal green at all?

Re: *pictures added* turquoise blue x tuquoise pallid hen

Alll fallows will have red eyes.
But not all birds that have red eyes are fallows.

Just the way that was said "fallow means red eyes" can lead other to believe that all birds with red eyes must be fallows, which is not true.

I dont know the female parentage as she was bought in a petstore, but the male both parents are green. What are my chances of getting an...
