If an Albino cock is paired with a Lutino hen, can the outcome be 50% Albino hens and 50% Lutino cocks??? If a Lutino cock is paired with an Albino hen, can the outcome be 50% Lutino hens and 50% Albino cocks???
But if the lutino *is* masking blue, then you could get albino chicks. (If the lutino has 1 gene for blue and 1 gene for green, because green is dominant the bird will look like a green series bird -lutino. But if it passes the blue gene to the chicks, and the chicks also get a blue gene from the albino -blue series- parent, then you will get albino chicks.)
A lutino is an ino bird that "masks*/would originally have been green series and an albino is an ino bird that "masks*/would originally have been blue series. They both have the same mutation, which "removes" the top colour and leaves the base colour (white for blue birds, yellow for green birds.)

The males are the only ones that can be "split" (mask) ino so you could have an ino daughter come out of a normal looking (but masking ino) father, whereas a hen can't be masking the ino mutation, she could only pass it on to chicks if she herself is visibly ino.
No...Breeding any ino colored male to a normal....all ino's are hens but any ino to ino you can't tell till they mature a little.It's the same as breeding a green to green or blue to blue you can't tell right away.If you bought the Lutino it is split blue.If it is a male and bred to a Albino you will get Lutino's and Albino's or if it is a hen and bred to a Albino you get the same out come.
