Default Possible Outcomes???

So I got the question from Mike, "What would their babies look like?"

Any mutations/genetics experts care to give their predictions?

Julio is a yellow face type II single factor grey spangle

His dad (Lindsey's Jinx) is a sky blue grey wing single factor spangle

His mom (Lindsey's Teak) is a yellow face type II double factor grey spangle (she is beautiful, looks JUST like Julio but darker!)

Shrimp is a sky blue recessive pied (no idea about parents)

Any guesses?

Going off of their visual mutations, you will expect:

Sky blues and sf greys in color, half with sf yellowface.
They will be normals and sf spangles.

Julio is split for greywing, and there is also a chance he is split for ino, opaline and cinnamon If he is you might get female inos, opalines and cinnamons. If shrimp is split for greywing you could also get greywings. I don't know of any recessive pied in his background, but you never know with recessive mutations so if he is you might get some of those too Basically there could be a lot of things

That's what I figured They are so different! I'm not keeping my hopes up that they will ever breed because he still won't let her come within a foot of him (unless she is in sleepy mode and he will sneak over to talk to her ) But who knows, maybe some day down the road!

How is your flock doing? I can't believe I have already had him for 2 years!!
