QUAKER MUTATION TYPES TYPICAL SELLING TERMS

A SIMPLE WHITE PAPER

BY NEWELL BENCH

I HAVE HAD MANY REQUESTS FOR INFORMATION ON QUAKER MUTATION GENETICS. MOST OF WHAT I HAVE HAS COME FROM RINGNECK MUTATION GENETICS, WHICH I BELIEVE ARE THE SAME FOR QUAKERS.

First a brief description of some of the Quaker Mutations :

American Snow Blue come out of the White Face family.

American White Face are a mix of  American Blue and American Yellow Face where both the Sex Link and the Recessive color show up on the same bird. This is a new color and as yet no one else has these so beware of false claims.

The American Yellow Face stems from a American Yellow Face Green birds that came from one old import male. They are a part of the par-ino group of mutations, actually a complex par-ino because they are a combination of 3 par-inos.

Cinnamon as where the Blues were imported from overseas.

Cinnamon Blues are a mix of Blue and Cinnamon where both the Sex Link and the Recessive color show up on the same bird.

pal*lid  (pld)

adj.

1. Having an abnormally pale or wan complexion: the pallid face of the invalid.

2. Lacking intensity of color or luminousness.

3. Lacking in radiance or vitality; dull: pallid prose.

 

Pallid birds are just lighter all over in color, per Linda Greason it is like dipping a bird in bleach which makes what some are calling Pallid in question because the flight and tail feather are not lighter.

Please note a  Pallid Blue or Dark Eyed Cinnamon Blue are  not  American White Face and look completely different. See picture of the American White Face and a Pallid Blue at  http://www.exoticflock.com/ below.

IN MY MIND THERE ARE FOUR TYPES OF GENETIC MUTATIONS:

Dominate - I know of no dominate gene as of yet in Quakers but in Ringnecks

they have a green/gray and even when mixed with Albino creates a Cream colored Albino.

Recessive - The Blue Quaker & Pied are examples of this mutation type.

Sex Linked - The Lutino, Albino, Yellow Face & Red Eyed Cinnamon Quakers are examples of this mutation type.

Intermediate - This would be like a Dark factor bird that when crossed with a Blue would produce Cobalt.


What follows is a poor attempt at some genetic possibilities. I will assume that 50% will be males and 50% hens. In my case I have been luckily that they do seem to come in pairs but I know , generally, there are more males than hens. Fortunately both sex's talk well and make great pets."


Any Visual Sex Link x Different Color = 100% Split Males and 100% Visual Hens.

Any Visual Sex Link Split to a Recessive Color x Different Color = 100% Split Males and 100% Visual Hens but half of each sex could be split to the Recessive Color.

Any Non Sex Link Split to Recessive x Different Color = 100% Green, half of which could be Split to the Recessive Color.

Any Visual Recessive Color x Different Color = 100% Green all Split to the Recessive Color.

Any Visual Recessive x Split to the Same Recessive = 50% Visual Recessive & 50% Green Split to the Recessive Color.

I do have some good Lookup Tables but the simple one has 99 options and I just do not have the time to type it up but maybe someday I can scan them.

Please let me KNOW if the above is helpful or not.

Please Note that only Males can be Split to a Sex Link Mutation

You can also have a bird that has all the Mutations Types and must map out each Color with its Mate to ESTIMATE what you might get.


CUSTOMERS

Are advised that birds are purchased in an "as is" condition. We would never knowingly sell a bird in poor health or condition. We can not be held responsible for any bird disease or condition that can not be outwardly seen at the time of purchase or shipping. No refunds or exchanges. Deposits are not refundable.

NOTE

Some of the terms may seem hard but just think what a breeder could lose if they accepted a return bird THAT was exposed to something or once a bird leaves your side and is shipped somewhere, try getting paid or the bird back. The bottom line is checkout your breeders first. In my mind they are just like doctors they all have a degree but the quality varies a lot and the only way to know is to check them out.
