3. 2 dark factors (e.g mauve) x 0 dark factors (e.g sky) will make 1 dark factor budgies (e.g cobalt)
4. Cobalt x cobalt will make half cobalt, 25% sky and the other 25% mauve
Hope this helps
the way you explain is is pretty much what I was expecting except the cobalts at the end, I wasn't sure on that one, I would have thought the chicks would get a dark factor off each parent and turn out mauve but was hoping not in case I did ever want to breed my Marli with Bobbit, I think they are both cobalt, although Marli is violet and dilute/greywing (something like that, she's in my avatar) so could be double factor violet skyblue, not sure! Bob is cobalt, so some violet cobalts from the pairing should turn up?
How about a cobalt with a sky blue?
