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

WattaBird! Understanding the Split-Opaline genetics in African LoveBirds

WattaBird! Understanding the Split-Opaline  genetics in African LoveBirds



This topic is basic knowledge for an experienced African LoveBirds Breeder, but can be confusing and sometimes causes some misunderstanding for newbie Breeders.


“If You have any questions, suggestions, or topics to discuss, please leave a comment below.”

For this article, I will try to provide some useful references to ensure that you know what to take note and what to watch out for when sourcing for a Split-Opaline African LoveBird.

Using a Split-Opaline Cock for your breeding program depends a lot on a trustworthy source for your African LoveBird cock (Split-Opaline).

Therefore, you have to source your Split-Opaline Cock from a reputable and trustworthy Breeder or Aviary.

Using a Split-Opaline Cock for your breeding program will also be budget friendly (You know what I mean).

It is important to note that only the Cock can be Split-Opaline.

Since the Opaline gene is a Sex-Linked, please take note that there will never be Split-Opaline daughters.

And most importantly, the Split-Opaline is not visual. This means the Split-Opaline African LoveBird will look exactly the same as a Normal African LoveBird, but they are genetically different. This is where the confusion and misunderstanding come into play.

You can only confirm a Split-Opaline Cock by breeding evidence.

And therefore, as I have mentioned earlier and I cannot emphasize it more that it is very very important to source your Split-Opaline cock from a reputable and trustworthy Breeder or Aviary.
