We investigate the dynamics of a population-imbalanced two-species fermionic system trapped in an optical lattice. The paired fermions here can form bosonic molecules via Feshbach coupling in the presence of an external magnetic field. It is shown that the natural fluctuations of the condensate fraction are periodic beyond a threshold Feshbach detuning; below this threshold value, the condensate fraction shows no oscillation at all. The oscillation frequency vs. detuning curve is linear in nature. The slope and intercept of this line are shown to carry important information about the amount of imbalance present in the system, and the momentum-space structure of the exotic phases.
