If the female is opaline (they cannot be split for it) and the females born will be normal and the males will either be opaline or split opaline. The same thing happens with Cinnamon which is introduced into the birds to improve the feather. Cinnamon gives longer softer feathers.

Wow, so interesting, especially the bits about how opaline is sex linkend and how breeding opalines with opalines will get rid of the spots!

I have a flecked cock bird who is a normal grey. Had a Grey Hen who was flecked and have had a couple of none opaline birds with minor flecking in the past.

That's interesting, I guess we'll wait and see if any of the experts have anything to say about this.
