Question: How is the Ino factor in Gouldians inherited?


C1: It's a sex linked mutation. In past history of the Ino mutation there has been a sexlinked and autosomal recessive mutation. The majority if not all ino's today are only sex linked. If the blue factor is crossed in Lutino’s, we also can get Albino’s. This means that the disappearance of the pigment is transferred into the blue line. Therefore is an albino gouldian finch a combination of the lutino and blue factor.
