Notes: Because of the albino gene, these birds will have slightly reduced vision at night and during high light periods of the day. These birds need to be housed in a light sensitive area, and overtime exposure to high light will damage their vision. The albino gene makes the birds susceptible to minor blood clotting issues.
These birds have been vaccinated for the polyoma virus. It is crucial for young birds to be protected as they have little to no immune system for their first year of life. Just as people, cats, dogs are vaccinated, we use vaccines to substantially decrease the incidence of disease in birds. By doing this we have developed a positive reputation that separates us from the "birdie mills" that do not aspire to the same standards. We have a vet on the premises bi-weekly that administer this vaccine and monitors our babies and flock.
Breeding Notes: Albino gene takes the birds longer to reach breeding age. EXTRA care must be taken when breeding albino birds. To insure vigor in the offspring produced. To some the albinos are considered to be a flawed gene. These birds need to be given flight space to insure fertility in the males, as they are prone to obesity.
