And finally, here is the chick on the end again, this time the blue by his feet is more visible.

Here's one last picture with all of their back markings together.
I'm also wondering why Tego has darker wing markings and a more vibrant blue than the others.

Here are some pictures of the parents. Snowy's iris rings are visible on my computer screen, so I hope they're visible on other monitors.
I didn't mess with the vibrance for these pictures, so the colours may be a little dull (I'm starting to wonder if Hari is a dilute and Snowy is a greywing split for dilute)!

Hari is opaline as well as recessive pied greywing.

The amount of body color can vary considerably on dominant pieds. Snowy's pink cere suggests that he is more than a single factor dominant pied

What do you think the rest of the chicks are if only two are combination pieds? (I'm guessing they're the two that have a bit of body colour near their feet).
What else could Snowy be that could cause the rest of the chicks to also look like him?
What caused the different shades of grey markings on the chicks? (Tego being the only one with the dark grey markings).

Question Calling all expert mutation identifiers! This one's tricky!

What mutations are the parents and what mutations do you think their chicks would be?
The male has iris rings. The female is split for blue.

Default What mutations are their chicks?

Now here are the 5 chicks they produced. They weren't what I was expecting at all. The father looked like a double factor dominant pied so I expected all the chicks to be single factor dominant pieds, but they all look like their father!

I've included pictures of the parents from the side.
And the vibrance has been turned up on the pictures of the chicks so it's easier to see where they have body colour.

Congratulations your birds are gorgeous.

I am no expert but I think the parents are both double factor dominant pieds, one sky blue and one light green. No surprise then that the babies are also all dominant pieds. I think the green must be split for blue too otherwise all the babies would have been green. All the green babies will also be split for blue.

Yes, I already posted that the mother (Hari) is split for blue. Hari is definitely a recessive pied. The chicks could be combination pieds if the father (Snowy) is split for recessive pied, except that it's very unlikely that all the chicks would be combination pieds.
I'm just looking for an expert to identify the chicks. I'm a genetics major but I'm still a novice when it comes to mutation identification.
