Unusual Birds
Very occasionally a cage or aviary bird is bred that appears very unusual. It may be a mutation or deformity that creates a point of interest amongst birdkeepers. Such an occurrence is the Gynander, more commonly known as the 'halfsider’. It is more likely to be seen in birds that are sexually dimorphic as each side of the bird takes on the appearance of a different sex. From experience, it seems more likely that the female colouration appears on the bird’s left-hand side.
