25% opaline sky blue females
25% opaline dominant pied sky blue females
25% sky blue males
25% dominant pied sky blue males
There won't be any greywing unless the cock bird is split for greywing or dilute
The female has no clear band - isn't she a clear flight pied and not a dominant pied?

I posted earlier about a recent baby of mine that just going by the parents and wings I kept calling it a dominant pied - Then yesterday It dawned on me she has no clear patch at all her chest is all one color so now I'm thinking she's a clear flight pied instead. Because the entire front area is all one color no breakage at all.
