In this case it is Xanthism (An animal which is yellow or golden in color. This may happen in nature or through selective breeding.)They will still have dark eyes...so similar to Albino which everyone knows.
The nigrita has been spawned for awhile by fish farms, their eggs are numbered very high so to get these mutants is not uncommon. Then it is just a question of line breeding.I have seen a number of different species of synos with the yellowish coloration, it is not something to get excited about. Dont see dollar signs if you ever come across it.
