Default what should I expect.

The male has been bred before he is a opaline spangle. all females produced were opaline.

The female Is a yellowface spangle but I am unsure if she is a mauve or a grey.

I expect to get various blue/grey spangles, with or without yellowfaces along with all white babies. if female all should be opaline. if male will be split opaline.

I don't know enough about genetics to help with your
question, but I will say that your birds are just beautiful!
Whatever babies they create will surely be lovely

Hi Angel226


I think you are wrong about the mutations of the pair.

From the picture shown,

1. Cock is skyblue greywing ( no opaline and not a spangle)
2. Hen is golden face type2 cobalt spangle (no grey no mauve)

With no split mutations known in the pair, the following offsprings are expected,

- 50% spangle and 50% normal
- 50% skyblues and 50% cobalts
- 100% golden face type1
- 100% split for greywings

Good luck in your breeding.

I do know that the cock is defiantly split opaline to say the least all females he produced were opaline and he is for sure spangle as he produced this chick (df spangle) with a green opaline spangle hen. unless you think the chick is a luntino if that's the case he's split ino but it would make no sense that the chick is male as the hen was not ino, I do agree that he is a grey wing. but I also believe he is spangle and opaline,
it's either coincidence he produced all opaline chicks with being split to opaline or he is just a poorly marked opaline spangle.

as for the hen thanks as I had no idea what to classify her as.

This chick shown is a female and not a male. She should have red eyes for a lutino chick. Other than this, the hen could had multiple mates prior to breeding this pair you had shown in 1st post.

One can't go wrong with punnet squares theory.

really? I'm pretty sure it is a male df spangle. ill take another picture as I did keep him. as for mutation you are agreeing with me that the chick is a df spangle? if that's the case I do not have any other spangle males other than the one in question. my other spangles are both female. the one I am pairing the male in question to And my green opaline spangle female that he was paired to previously to produce the df spangle yellow chick posted. so even if she did happen to mate with a different male before i separated her into a different cage my other males would only be able to produce inos. Ill try to get a picture of the males back also. and of my other opaline spangle female.

the hen shown at the start of the post is the one I am pairing him to now. it is not the same hen who produced the df spangle chick but it is the same male to be used.
