I hatched 3 chicks in one clutch from a pair of normal blue and gold macaws that I have raised about 20 normal chicks before. This time there are 2 albinos (or leucistic) and 1 normal. They have red eyes, white beaks,toes, and skin. Around their face are gold feathers and their body is a creamy light yellow. There is no other color - like the blue, green, or black. Is this common in macaws? Are they twins (they are both males)? Will this happen again from these parent birds?
