Hi,

I bought this male as a bec x pied. He is entirely yellow with pink feet and shows all the bec signs except for his grey and black beak!

Does this mean he would be a bec or a recessive pied? And if I paired him to a bec female what young would I expect to get?

Hello Nicole,

These birds are a combination of recessive and dominant pied. In the best case the bird is totaly free of melanin(black pigment) in all body parts. Very often there are parts unaffected. For instance a black toe, a green spot around the eye(s). In the case of your bird the beak is unaffected.

A pairing with another BEC can result in youngster with a few unaffected bodyparts to 100% pieds.
