Has anyone ever seen one of these? I think it's incredibly interesting looking, and probably the only way I'd consider an African Grey. As with most albinos, I'm assuming their life span is shorter than normals?

Bleck, I don't like those or the completely red ones. The red ones though, look particularly disgusting.

I looked for some INO babies last year for some people and there were none in the US, most had been bought up in the last few months by some European breeder, Still a pricie bird if you can find one.

I think it looks interesting. I always sort of wonder if the breeding for odd color mutations winds up perpetuating other less desirable traits, though. I've definitely seen it horses, not for color, but breeding quarter horses for the very heavy body type has lead to a high incidence of HYPP (hyperkalemic periodic paralysis) in quarter horses from the Impressive bloodlines.

I have never saw one white in real and looking at that picture is no, no to me. I don't know what I would say if I see one for real, maybe my reaction will be different. I like watching regular Grey's.

hmm, an interesting look. I don't like the pink beak and feet though but I can see how the white-ish main body could be attractive...

Mutation african greys are about the only mutations I can't hang with. I just don't find it attractive.

Like olive/emerald cockatiels. I just don't get what all the excitement's about.

I like albino anything. They're so fascinating to me. But the red mutation looked splotchy to me.

I agree. They just look ugly.

It's an incomplete ino. It has a red tail and a twinge of grey.

Some ino's I like, some I don't. As it turns out, I kinda like that one. I'm still not a fan of grey's as a rule but it has nothing to do with they way they look - I think they're pretty either way.
