Either way it doesn't matter, because the female spangle has black which suppresses the Greywing and Dilute mutation.
My opinion is that you will get:
Dad: grey(sf) blue dilute spangle(sf) opaline
Mom: green spangle(sf) opaline ---> if in case mom is also Split to Blue genes you will also get white based of the following mutations
12.50% 1.0 grey(sf) green spangle(df) opaline
12.50% 1.0 grey(sf) green opaline
25.00% 1.0 grey(sf) green spangle(sf) opaline
12.50% 1.0 green spangle(df) opaline
12.50% 1.0 green opaline
25.00% 1.0 green spangle(sf) opaline
Spangle (df) means they will be completely yellow.
i think i'm correct, if i am wrong please correct me. I do mistakes sometimes. Have in mind these are Visual genes and have not written the Split genes babies will have.
The mama bird is blue though, not green
I'd love to see a more natural pic of the cock. If he's a dilute I'll be right there to budgienap him. They are my favourite mutation
