Seems like daddy is carrying opaline which means the opaline bubs are females and the other two must be males split for opaline. Lucky they are all violet

I'm not an expert! but those are my opinions
Thankyou, very helpful. I didnt realise... If dad carries a
hidden opaline gene, then all opaline bubs are female
They ARE both female, eldest pied is female also the one
with allt he black on her head, and the other pied is male.
So I guess the pied male is split for opaline?

Yes Grace is DF dom pied, I still wonder how that works
between double & single factor DP.
