Default Chicks from this pair?

Hi again

This is just for my own curiosity, especially since I love learning about genetics, my guppies taught me a lot about colour genetics, and I'm eager to learn budgie genetics, no plans to actually breed yet although the thought has entered my head before admittedly, I'm in no position for it right now anyway, but what do you think, if I had paired these two up, what would the resulting chicks be, based on what colours the parents are, assuming they are not split for anything. I think they would have some very pretty chicks

The hen is Marli, and from what I can tell she is a cobalt violet grey wing, yellow face type 2, as a baby she was a very beautiful lilac colour, before the yellow spread into it, she was the one who started all the budgie madness off, bless her (please excuse Marlows little face in the photo!)

The cock Skylar is (again from what I can tell) a skyblue violet greywing, I say this because in person he has a very vivid violet colour around the back of his neck and a bit around his bottom. It is possible he is cobalt, but with such obvious violet around the neck I think skyblue violet. Unfortunately the picture doesn't do him justice.

Thank you in advance!

Seems he is also opaline. Hard to tell if she is. Assuming she isn't, you can expect sky blues and cobalts in greywing. Some with YF2. All female chicks will be opaline.

If she is opaline, all chicks will be opaline.

Thank you I knew they would have awesome babies, and thank you even more I didn't see the opaline! I have two opaline hens, didn't realise I had an opaline boy too! How lovely

I was still wondering a bit on this pairing, and have some updated pictures, the hen is opaline, I found a picture of her with Misty and Marlow as a chick, before her yellow spread (first pic), and it clearly shows opaline I was convinced she wasn't until I found her baby picture Also you can see her lilac colour a lot better in the picture without a flash! I also got a better one of Skylar, but wow I need a better camera.

So out of this pair would violet show, and if he was sky violet would it make a difference? I'm still sketchy on the inheritance of violet. Also still far too scared to actually breed and find out for myself

Thanks guys!
