Cockatiel breeding combination
We are the hobbyist to keep cockatiels. Sometimes we need to know the breeding combination and what will be the outcome of the chicks and their colour mutations. most of the breeders and hobbyist just breed. If we really wanted to know about breeding and their mutation combinations are below. so plan accordingly what will be the outcome based on our breeding birds combination. Since I shared my personal experience. It may be useful for many.
