WattaBird! My African LoveBirds Fischer CHICKS (Gallery) Just sharing some of my African LoveBirds Fischer Chicks.  These are some of the first batch of offsprings from my African LoveBirds Breeding Pairs.  These photos were taken back in the early days when I was just starting with African LoveBirds breeding. These are African LoveBirds from the Agapornis Fischeri family, also known as eye-ring or African LoveBirds 2 (ALBS2). These photos popped in my Facebook Memories, reminding me of these beautiful African LoveBirds Chicks  that I have in my mini-aviary 12 long years ago! “If You have any questions, suggestions, or topics to discuss, please leave a comment below.” This is a Lutino Fischer Chick  (Parents: Bulls White Fischer Cock x Bulls Yellow Fischer Hen) These are Lutino and Albino Fischer Chicks (same clutch) (Parents: Bulls White Fischer Cock x Bulls Yellow Fischer Hen) This is a Green Fischer Chick (Parents: Green Fischer Cock x Olive Fischer Hen) This is a Green Fischer Chic

SEX-LINKED INHERITANCE

This blog post will discuss the next method or pattern of inheritance which is what is called SEX-LINKED.


SEX-LINKED inheritance in African LoveBirds are traits that are carried in the genetic chromosomes that also determines the sex of the offspring. 


In sex-linked inheritance daughters will NEVER be Split.

Daughters can only be either Visual or Normal.

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


Here is a guide on the Breeding Chart for SEX-LINKED inheritance: (These tables are taken from an article written by Rick Smith from Lakeview Terrace, California. The article is titled, The Peach-Faced LoveBirds, Agapornis Roseicollis and its Mutations.)


Let’s us use the Lutino mutation for our example.


Breeding Pair 1: 

Lutino (Cock) x Normal Green (Hen)


Offspring are Normal Green Daughters; Green Split-Lutino Sons; Green Lutino Daughters


For this breeding pair, Sons will be Green Split-Lutino. 

Daughters will either be Lutinos or Normal Greens. 

There is no such thing as Daughters being Split-Lutino.


Breeding Pair 2: 

Normal Green (Cock) x Lutino (Hen)


Offspring are Normal Green Daughters; Normal Green Split-Lutino Sons


For this breeding pair, All offspring will be visually Normal Greens.

There are no Lutinos produced.


Breeding Pair 3: 

Normal Green Split-Lutino (Cock) x Lutino (Hen)


Offspring are Normal Green Daughters; Normal Green Split-Lutino Sons; Lutino Daughters; Lutino Sons


For this breeding pair, all four possibilities can be produced. 


Breeding Pair 4: 

Lutino (Cock) x Lutino (Hen)


Offspring are Lutino


For this breeding pair, all offspring will be Lutino and will be produced for both sexes.
