JacoRBow_RSA is on a distinguished road

Thx to all,

Very proud of him, especially since he's not always in such "good condition" - a bit too "rough feathers" that doesn't always "appear neat"...

Yes, a Light-Green Spangle Opaline he is....

Just interesting that his dad was the visual Opaline in this case, a gene that is sex-linked and (in his case, a cock baby) must have come from his mother...which is a Grey-Green hen!?...(note: breeding cage setup, so mom and dad is known with certainty!)

Can the gene experts confirm?:
- whether this Opaline can be carried in "split" form by his mother?; and
- whether the "white cheek patches" are typical of / normal for a Spangle?

thx to all

Stay well,
