Question what will be the chicks outcome?

hello, so I have a mauve dom. Pied cock which I'm thinking to breed someday, not to soon HAHA! someday I posted two pictures of my hen and also my mauve cock and I want to know what will be the chicks outcome if I paired my cock to this two hens I have.

here is my skyblue spangle hen.


here is my other hen I'm not sure on her mutation but i think yellowface is involved and spangle too.


and my mauve cock

With your sky blue hen, you will get all cobalt babies. Half will inherit the spangle and half will inherit the dominant pied. You can expect some normal cobalts as well. Keep in mind, some chicks could be pied and spangle.

The other hen looks like a light green spangle. IF she is not split for blue, all babies will be dark green, some spangle, some dom pied, some normals. If she is split to blue, you can expect some cobalts in spangle, normal and dom pied.

Hi, Kirsten! If you look at the green hens markings, you can see that the feathers on her wings look like they are outline in black. As opposed to the male bird in this thread. See the differencE?

Here is a website that may help:

Default The spangle :)

Thanks Erin, that was very helpful! So if I've got it right, my male budgie in the photo below is spangled? And perhaps the white female - although she is a bit harder to see...

Not sure about the hen but the grey green male is a spangle.
