Did anyone get these birds? Has anyone else had breeding success?

I've not heard anything about the white plumheads but the pic above is what is being bred overseas. We had these here as well but they have disappeared as well. What breeders are saying are fawns now here in Aust' are hard to decipher from a normal looking bird.
I'm fairly sure the white bird has plum eyes FB so it would sexlinked recessive.

That one is a beauty Craig. More of a Dilute than a Fawn?? I'm not real good with Plumheads, never having had them.
So the white's breeding is like that of the Albino budgie, even though it is not an Albino. Well that will make working out what to do easier for breeders.
