Beautiful birds! Cozette may be a good influence on them when it comes to taming them. Only 2 of mine are tame but they have been a good influence on the others to the point that some of them will now sit on my head or jump onto my arm for a short time.

Gorgeous pair!! Congrats to you and your Dad!! You've got a great 'eye' for quality stock!

You have two gorgeous wee birds.

Because the female is carrying the sex linked genes for opaline and cinnamon you won't get this visually transferring to the chicks. I am guessing she is a SF violet and he is SF Grey, in which case you will have a 50% violet, 25% grey and 25% sky. All the males will be split for opaline and cinnamon.

Is there any chance the babies would look like the female? It sounds like they could be violet like her but with black markings instead of the cinnamon? Is that correct?

Yes, that is correct. Males and females will look like normal (black wing markings) in either sky, grey or violet. The males will be split for opaline and cinnamon, so their chicks could throw these mutations.

Unless he is split to cinnamon or opaline? I thought opaline was dominate, meaning only one parent would have to give it to the offspring for them to express it? Is cinnamon recessive then?

both cinnamon and opaline are sex-linked recessive. all sex-linked varieteis in budgies are recessive as far as I know.

so, though it is likely that the chicks would have normal markings like dad, it is very common in many places for normals to be split opaline so you may get opalines, or even cinnamons if he is split for cinnamon.

What does sex linked recessive mean? Sorry, lol
