I was just wondering if anyone on here keeps the yellow mutation pekin robins originally from south of France? Are they available in Europe or Uk?

I prefer to call them dilutes as they are not yellow as in say canary yellow. but yes they have been available for a long time, the first one i see was in a Belgian friends shop over 10 years ago and sold for 600euros, this variant has evolved from normal coloured escaped birds that found an area that suits them perfectly and breeding in large numbers so well we are talking several hundred each year, that the French issue permits to trap and destroy them because they are not a native species but instead of killing them the trappers sell them, the price stepped on the number you buy, the lowest price buying over 100 head 25 euros each, but because they are breeding freely they also come under the protection of the law, pretty much like our UK rules on native species it gets very confusing. have kept this Pastel/dilute variant in the past but preferred the Normal wild colour so sold them to a French guy.This colour variant is dominant = its either visual is or it is not both in males and females = no splits/carriers, but it can be double factor which makes it appear more yellow. there are few breeders in Belgium and Holland concentrating on breeding this colour variant.

I agree with you Peter, over 40 years of breeding I'v never seen any mutation colour better then the normal colour of any bird.

If this coloured variant had plum coloured eyes i would say it was a cinnamon but they dont.
