It's hard to say without knowing what the parent birds are split for.

Cock appears to be a cobalt fullbody color greywing. Hen looks like a lutino (if she has plum red eyes) Going off the assumption that your hen is lutino as it is hard to tell from the picture!


If the hen is split for blue you should get blue series and/or green series chicks. If your hen is not split for blue, you will get all green series.

If the cock is split for ino, then you could possibly get male and female Ino. If he is not split for ino, none of the chicks will be visual inos.

Ino basically removes pigment from the feathers so the hen could be masking any number of mutations. If she happens to be masking greywing/ clearwing (or is split for them) you could possibly get full body color greywings. If she is not masking or split for greywing/clearwing, you will get normal chicks.

In short!! If the hen is not masking or split for anything and the cock bird is not split for anything either, expect normal green chicks. I'm almost certain you'll get a few surprises though.

Now if your hen is not ino and happens to be a double factor spangle (black eyes with iris rings) then all the resulting babies will be single factor spangle.


If she is a Dark Eyed clear (Black eyes with no iris rings), then I can't really help you. I'm not entirely sure how that mutation works. Sorry!

Cock bird is cobalt normal.

Hen is either:
1. Lutino if she has red eyes.
2. Double factor spangle if she has black eyes with iris rings.
3. Dark-eyed clear if she has black eyes without iris rings.

As for body color, all the chicks will be green series unless the hen is split to blue. If so, half the chicks will be green split to blue and the other half will be blue.

Let's pin down the hen's mutation before we predict chick mutations.
Can you post clearer pictures?

Assuming neither bird is split and the female is lutino and the male is a cobalt greywing, as you said, the chicks would be:

25% dark green males split for white base, ino and greywing
25% dark green females split for white base and greywing
25% lime green males split for white base, ino and greywing
25% lime green females split for white base and greywing


The trouble is that lutino can hide a lot of mutations.

I hope this helps!

Without knowing splits... your results are...
Male
50.0% green /blue greywing ino
50.0% D green /blue greywing ino
Females are the same but no ino
