The Ellegant Lutino Rainbow Lorikeet.





This particular bird is a young Lutino Rainbow lorikeet.












We have been working with this colour since 2003.























Below we have a young SF lutino Pied hen still to colour up but the unusual white head and abdomen colouration is said to relate back to a Jade mutation.

We haven't been able to prove that so far and could more likely relate back to the Aqua mutation.
















The Lutino colour is a
Sexlinked mutation




The Lutino sex-linked gene works as follows:

This gene is a little hard to get your head around, but if read often enough it will make sense.


Remember this :
the Female can not be split for the colour,
only the Male can be split.




Lutino Male X Normal Female = Split/Lutino Males & Lutino Females


Normal/ Split Lutino Males X Normal Female = Lutino Females, Normal Females And possible Split / Lutino Males.
These males will need to be test bred to see if they are split Lutino.


Normal Male X Lutino Female = Normal / split Lutino Males & Normal Females


Normal/ Split Lutino Males X Lutino Females = Normal / split Lutino Males Lutino Males Lutino Females Normal Females


Lutino Males X Lutino Females = Lutino Males Lutino Females.





Lutino Male X DF Pied Female = split/Lutino Males & Lutino Females.


Normal/ Split Lutino Males X Normal Female = Lutino Females, Normal Females And possible Split / Lutino Males.
These males will need to be test bred to see if they are split Lutino.


Normal Male X Lutino Female = Normal / split Lutino Males & Normal Females


Normal/ Split Lutino Males X Lutino Females = Normal / split Lutino Males Lutino Males Lutino Females Normal Females


Lutino Males X Lutino Females = Lutino Males Lutino Females.


Clear as mud like I told you, read again and again.
