|Premiere Book Review
by Dr. Rainer R. Erhart
"Well, there is help on the horizon and anyone seriously interested in color genetics should
take a look at Linda Rubin's book: COCKATIEL GENETICS MADE EASY! Though this book is
primarily directed to breeders of cockatiel mutations, there is enough information in this
volume to teach anyone the secrets of dealing with recessive, sex-linked, and dominant
I have been a teacher at both high school and college levels and know that the key to good
teaching is organization, simplicity and repetition. Well, you will find all of these in the fifteen
chapters of this book. It takes you step by step from the simplest pairing to complex
Each chapter is arranged like a true workshop by giving you an introduction to a specific color
mutation, demonstrating how the colors can be combined, then asking you to do a similar
problem and finally giving you a little quiz at the end which tests whether you have truly
mastered that chapter.
I found that the materials kept me interested which is a sure sign that the book uses a sound
strategy and that it will give much pleasure and knowledge to all who had almost given up on
learning how to predict colors when working with color mutations."

Cockatiel Genetics Made Easy! is the first workbook on avian
genetics for aviculturists - and the only teaching manual that
demonstrates how to determine colors, genders, and
percentages of offspring without using confusing Punnett
Squares. This alternate method easily eliminates doubt and error
commonly found in computer programs that fail to predict all
probabilities, including recombinant genetics and crossover.
The workbook uses an easy to understand format designed
especially for ease of use, with mini quizzes included in each
chapter and answers in the back that explain each concept fully.
Learning is at the reader's own pace. It allows you to predict
offspring with skill and confidence and enables aviculturists and
hobbyists to save valuable breeding seasons. Plan the color
mutations you wish to produce for your customers and your own
gene pool and future pairings.
