have a question... I am getting a baby CAG...dna sexed Male. He is 7 weeks old and will bring him home when he is weaned. he has one white toe on each foot. His wings are very dark in color... his tail is a very bright red. The breeder said she has only had one before with a white toe, but never had one that has a white toe on each foot. I wondered if this meant anything or just one of natures wonders..

It might mean he's pied, split pied or just one of those random things. I have heard that some white toed birds that, once they grew up and matured, the toes changed to their normal coloration... where-as others have remained white. If it's an indication that he is pied (I'd highly doubt split pied), then he's a very light pied and it may take several generations (and years) to increase the amount of piedness (aka areas lacking in color). I don't know if any breeder has tried to do this before with white toed birds, however.
