The Cinnamon cockatiel mutation Formerly appeared under the denomination “of Isabelle” or of “cinnamon“.In this mutation, there is a modification of the oxidation of eumelanin (which has disappeared). Only the phaeomelanin remains present as dark pigments.

The intensity of the cockatiel colors is also affected.

the melanin present in the body of the bird, therefore, has an attenuated coloring compared to the wild form, it is diluted.

The black pigmentation due to the eumelanin has for its part completely disappeared and then appears brown in the plumage.

At birth, the eye has a rather dark red color (plum) and becomes darker in adulthood

The transmission of this mutation is recessively linked to sex, it is therefore carried by a sex chromosome, the Z chromosome. We also speak of gonosomal or heterosomal transmission.

It can be combined with other mutations.

Cinnamon cockatiel male

Hoopoe

At their roots, the feathers of the hoopoe are the same yellow color as those of the head. The longest crest feathers may turn slightly light brown towards their tips.

Head

There is a region of yellow color whose outline starts from the forehead and the upper front part of the head, passes above each brow bone, gradually descends behind the mumps, turns under them, and meets at the level of the throat. . This yellow-colored zone is delimited by a regular curve, not comprising any hatching or inlays with the neighboring zones of a different color. It is accepted a thin white border, without hatching design, at the border of the yellow and brown colors of the head, located behind the mumps.

 

In the auricular region, there is a round orange-red spot (called mumps) 1.8 centimeters in diameter. This region should also be clearly demarcated from the yellow color of the head and not have any encrustation. The red-orange color must be uniform and well contrasted.
The top and back of the head form a narrow brown band behind the crest. This band widens along each side of the head following the yellow color and meets the color of the neck. The color is brown on the back of the head and lighter brown on the breast without any encrustation.

All of these areas should be a uniform brown color. The color should be warm and even, without any incrustation or marbling effect.

Wings

All wing feathers (coverts and flight feathers) are uniform brown in color with the exception of a depigmented wing band that borders the outside of part of the wing (when the wing is at rest). This band originates at the wing joint, runs along the wing at the fold-over 1.8 to 2 centimeters wide, and ends on the secondary flight feathers.
The design of the band should be regular, without any indentation with the brown color of the wing. The color should be white; some light yellow suffusions are accepted.

Chest, Belly, Panties, Underside

These areas are brown without mottling, slightly paler than the upper parts.
Yellow inlays on the belly are accepted in small quantities and provided that their design is regular and symmetrical.

Hoopoe

The crest is brown in color but there are some pale yellow undertones at the roots of the feathers on the forehead.

Head

In the ear region, there is a round orange-red spot (called mumps) 1.5 centimeters in diameter. The color is duller than in the male. Although this mumps is circular in shape and requires delineation in the male, the female standard tolerates small yellow and brown encrustations on the outer periphery of this mumps. This tolerance excludes any significant and unsightly indentations.

The space covering the underside of the eye up to the cheeks and between the beak and the mumps is yellow and brown in color. The space running from the top of the nostrils to the eye contour is also yellow and brown in color.
The top and back of the head form a narrow brown band behind the crest.

This band widens along each side of the head following the orange-red color and joins on the neck. The color is brown on the back of the head and lighter brown on the breast without any encrustation.

All wing feathers (coverts and flight feathers) are uniform brown in color with the exception of a depigmented wing band that borders the outside of part of the wing (when the wing is at rest). This band originates at the wing joint, runs along the wing at the fold-over 1.8 to 2 centimeters wide, and ends on the secondary flight feathers.

The elongated design of the wing band widens in the middle, without any indentation with the brown color of the wing. The color should be white; some light yellow suffusions are accepted.

Chest, Belly, Panties, Underside

The breast is light brown without a mottled effect. Belly, breeches, and undertail are light brown with pale yellow markings. On these regions, this marbled pattern of light brown and yellow must remain regular

 

Rump, Sus-Caudales

The rump and upper tail are transversely streaked white and brown.

Tail

The upper side is streaked white and brown for all feathers except the two outer rectrices streaked with brown and pale yellow. The tips of the central caudals are dark brown.
