    how to tell pure penguins from splits

    Cheers Andyn I looked it up and penguins have diluted tails so the dark ones are splits or normal I assume also no tear drops so I know one of the offending females lol. Quite like the mix so will see where it goes for a while.

    how to tell pure penguins from splits

    can you tell pure bred penguins from splits, I had 4 pairs of pures from an aviary centre but had 2 females escape and 1 die so I bought 4 females from a breeder at a bird sale but now have splits and as mine are colony bred its hard to tell who are the true parents as nine fledged at once. here are some. do penguins have white tails as some now have the bars on the tails

    as they are in the aviary every time I try to photograph them they hide in top corner. I assume the spots on the head are moulting with new feathers coming through its just I never noticed this on my others mum is last pic she is one I've brought in from another breeder whereas my others are from show stock.
