Lovebird Genetics Calculator
Version 1.5 - Program by Doug
Welcome to the Peachfaced
Lovebird Genetics Calculator. This program is written in the Java (tm)
programming language. Most web browsers now support JAVA code, but If
all you see below this text is an empty space, then you are not using a
Java compatible web browser. Sorry.
This program allows you to
quickly calculate the possible color combinations that can result from
a pairing of any two peachfaced lovebirds. I have tried to include the
most commonly available peachfaced mutations, though some have been
omitted. All known mutations will be included in a later version of the
Several caveats about this
1. You will need to know enough about your parent birds to tell the
program what mutations they carry.
2. The program only uses the accepted names for color mutations, and
does not insert special names for combinations. For example, a
"Creamino" will be shown as a "Dutch Blue Lutino", and a "Slate" will
be shown as a "Dark Dutch Blue."
Future improvements may
Percentage possibilities of each color combination occurring.
Ability to print out results.
Additional mutations (American Yellow, etc.)
Seperate listings of visual and non-visual combinations.
The ability to select what bird you want, and determine what parent
birds you would need.
If there is an interest, I
will create a similar program for the Eye-Ring Lovebirds
