White Flighted

Post by Johannes »

One of the advantages of having marked birds is I can easily identify the workers or the early droppers when flying the birds. One type I find really effective and beautiful to watch are a couple of birds with balanced white flights. By balanced I mean both wings and all primaries are white. A big joy of keeping tipplers is just watching them fly. I’d like to breed this into my kits. Adam, any advice would be great.
I’ve noticed a hen with a single white tail feather who has produced youngsters with a single (usually central) white tail feather although I’m not sure I want to breed that into my birds usually with white flights too. Thank you Adam.

Unfortunately I'm not aware of any research into white-flightedness so far.

Anyone else is welcome to answer by the way, this is a community page, not just for me to answer :D
