Ive got 2 of these and was wondering what type of Kakariki they are, an if there mutations, have they got a breed name?

Please find attached a picture, the one at the front is called Tickle (male) and talks a lot, the one at the back is Tilly (female).

All I can tell u is the basics (we don't have mutations in NZ)
1/Mutation = A natural gene that causes a change in the colour of a species (can also be applied to size and stuff)
2/Hybrid= a cross between 2 species ...eg between the yellow and Red crown species of kakariki. This is usually seen as a mix of yellow and red feathers in the red crown. A big no-no Reds and yellows generally have to be forced to cross breed, they will not do so naturally and will not do so in a mixed aviary (unless forced)

Your birds appear to be mutations of the red crown, note the red crown and red spot behind the eyes. Which mutation I will leave to, our breeders to follow up.

Difficult to say, but I believe I can see the one in the foreground has a vissible irisring. If this is true and the eyes are red and the bird(s) has/have a pale yellow body color without a single trace of green, it/they is/are Lutino(s).

Yes, they have both visible iris rings, and they are totally yellow with no green, apart from the red on the heads and a slight bit of red towards the back underside of the wings on their main body, just above where the legs are.

Sorry to highjack your post Uncle chicken :oops:

So if they are pure yellow with and iris ring they are a lutino?
What if they have a dark black eye? (also yellow)
Did try to get a pic but as she is sitting on eggs at the moment its a bit hard.

Edit: Found an old pic of her.

When a yellow red fronted has total black eyes it's a double factor dominant pied. Probably she is split to recessive pied. The two pied genes interact in such a way the result is a complete yellow bird.
