*Dominant yellow* an update!

In April 2018 we published on our web blog that a South African breeder kept records of his *dominant yellow* Agapornis fischeri and he had the impression that the inheritance is Sex-Linked incomplete dominant. We asked our visitors to do some extra test matings in order to confirm / debounce this theory.

We also checked the pedigree of several *dominant yellow* Agapornis fischeri and the recent breeding outcomes of the test matings.
This revealed that the *dominant yellow* Agapornis fischeri (the onces we have here in our collections) doesn’t have a SL incomplete dominant inheritance.
So the birds in Willie’s aviary are probably a different mutation.

    Very interesting Dirk, so are we any closer to the real solution for “Dominant geel” yet?

    Anything that you can share? Or maybe any of the breeders can share their experience? Very interesting subject. 🙂
