Albino or just white faced?


Hello! I have a pair of white face gray parents that just had three babies. Two are gray with white wing tips as usual but the other one is going to be all white with red eyes! Is it albino or just considered white face also?
Thanks in advance!


Answer:

Hi Kay,

Your white bird will be a White Faced Lutino, and will be a female. While these are often called Albino, there is no true albino mutation in cockatiels.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
