Is yellowface recessive?  (This is just a test, I know the answer).

Nope. It can be masked by Goldenface or Green.

I'm a beginner breeder and I'm trying my best to understand the genetics of our budgies. Let me take a quess on this question. I think that if you find a yellow face in your nest box and neither parent is visual yellow face, then you have one of them or possible both of them as what is refered to as type I yellow face, and it would be recessive. But I think it can go father than this but don't know for sure.

Very good answer.... Dewayne...
This is exactly why I love genetics. But my concern is, if we don't get this information out there by our Vetern Breeders to our lesser experienced breeders, I'm afraid that we may recess backwards in the enhancement of the Budgies themselves.

Is this a trick question? Which yellowface and under what conditions? All three alleles are recessive to green. Type I (creamface) is recessive to both type II and type III alleles. Type II is recessive to type III (goldenface).
