African Grey Red Factor/Gene
« on: November 10, 2016, 10:25:13 AM »

Good morning and hello to all the members here,

I would like to ask if you guys have experienced or know about red factor genes on an African Grey. Would they molt out of these red feathers also having a couple of white toe nails/claws (1 on each foot) would these indicate towards a red factor gene or the white nails may turn black at a later stage....
Anybody had their greys with white toe nails...
Some breeders have them and say it's just anomaly??
Any suggestions please  :ty

She will needless to say be popping on here when she gets home from work  :cheekywink:

As i said yesterday my grey had a white claw, no red feathers though, some say it indicates red factor but i never saw it in mine.

I know of two others with white claws, no red factor though.

why are you asking?
