Well I can't help with much other than to say your male isn't DF dominant pied. He must be a combination recessive and dominant pied and your Lutino hen is split for recessive pied and blue. Are you sure she is Lutino? Post a pic. I only know that I have read lots of discussion of lutino vs other similar mutations, like maybe DF spangle. I am pretty clueless on those mutations.

It would still be a against the odds to have 4 recessive pied babies because your chances of dominant pied with a sf is 50/50 dominant pieds. I guess he could be recessive pied and sf dominant pied because they are different genes. I think that's right!? Still if that's the case and your hen was split for recessive pied your chances were again 50/50 recessive pieds. They are all beautiful and I think you hit the genetic jackpot because recessive pieds are my favorite! Maybe some are pied combinations but we need more pics at different angles to tell. Yay more baby budgie pics!
