    Lovebird Genetic Calculator

    Hello. Basically, I know how to use the calculator, but I have a doubt. I don’t understand what T1 or T2 mean. I’ve read their description, but it still doesn’t make sense. Can someone help, thanks.

    What mutation is this?

    Color Mutation Identification?

    Just curious if anyone knows what the name of Basil's color is? He was sold to us by the breeder as a Peach Face, but just for fun I'd like to identify the specific color mutation. Thoughts? Thanks in advance! (Note: This is just his travel cage - his new big cage is coming on Thursday!)
