|White Zebra finch male|
Male: All white feathering. Legs and beak retain the orange/red coloring of the normal. Males can be determined by their bright red beaks and their song.
Female: All white feathering like the males. Females can be determined by their orange rather than red beaks. They also do not sing.
Fledgling: Chicks can be identified by their pink beaks and all white feathering. Some whites will fledge with some gray flecks on their heads. This will often disappear after the first molt, but may not be complete.
When breeding Whites from birds that are split for the mutation, its best to pay close attention to the chicks should they be mixed with normals. The normal chicks will have complete gape markings while the White chicks will lack all markings and may not receive the same attention from the parents. (See the mouth markings page to see examples)
