WattaBird! Unlocking the Palette: Breeding African Lovebirds for Mesmerizing Mutations! Breeding African Lovebirds to create new mutations can be an exciting and rewarding endeavor for aviculturists. Here are some potential breeding combinations to produce new African Lovebird mutations: Lutino x Lutino: Breeding two lutino African Lovebirds can result in offspring with a higher chance of being lutino, which is a beautiful all-yellow mutation. Lutino x Pied: Crossing a lutino with a pied Lovebird can produce visually striking pied lutinos with patches of yellow and other colors. Turquoise x Blue: Pairing a turquoise Lovebird with a blue one can produce visually appealing turquoise blues, which have a combination of turquoise and blue feathers. Violet x Blue: Breeding a violet Lovebird with a blue Lovebird can result in visually striking violet blues, combining the violet and blue colorations. Opaline x Normal: Crossing an opaline Lovebird with a normal one can produce opaline offspring

This Breeding Chart aims to help provide an idea regarding the breeding combinations for the Ino mutation in African LoveBirds.

This Ino Breeding Chart applies to both Albino and Lutino African LoveBirds, and therefore, I will be using the term “Ino” within this article.

Albino is the term used to refer to White Ino LoveBirds.

Lutino is the term used to refer to Yellow Ino LoveBirds.

This Ino Breeding Chart will also provide a bloodline composition of the offspring, which will be useful for matching breeding pairs for a targeted result.

The Ino gene is a Sex-Linked trait. This genetic trait is hereditary and can be passed on to the offspring. The Ino inheritance will depend on the INO genes the parents carry.

Since the Ino trait is sex-linked, daughters will NEVER be Split-Ino.

Daughters can only be either Visual Ino or Normal.

Sons on the other hand can be, Visual Ino or Split-Ino.
