Clear :)

We are still wondering about the Red beaks on these birds. They are from a Hecks Longtrail, no? The beak isnt a deep red, its more transparent.

We have creamino Hecks longtail here, but never seen a Blackthroat creamino.

Do all offspring come out true to this form?

Could the gene that takes the black out of the feathers also be taking it out of the beak? In the same way that some pieds have white feet? Just me thinking.

There are Hecks Longtails on your website though?

No, they seem to be Blackthroats..
The creamino gene seems to turn the beak back to a redish colour? Check that link out i posted above. Note the shape of the tail.

Well, if you click on the different species profiles on the website link provided by picta, there's one for Heck's......I assumed it was a list of the species kept :?

Anyway, each to their own....

My original point/concern mackstaa was that the red bill (and possibly the colour mutation) may have come from hybridising with Reb Billed (Hecks) Longtails which I saw as a species kept on the website............I am told this is a typical method of transferring a desired mutation from one closely related species to another........The Pearl Longtail has been bred with Black Throats to introduce that mutation into the Black Throat population, for example

Anyway, I too have read that Hawkesbury Finch Club article and not being a genetics expert I can only assume that the red bill, in this mutation, occurs naturally, ie it does not originate via hybridisation.........

Well done Picta81 and to all Aussie Finch fans here and abroad :thumbup:
