Default grey budgies ?

I had skyblue greywing male, and albino hen.
they had three budgie.

All are now about 20 days and all of three are grey colour ( not mauve )

i know that grey is dominat to blue and maybe albino hen is grey ( hidden form)

But, albino has some blue suffusion on her body very pale. So ı can estimate that she is actually in a blue series.

So, how can these 3 grey chicks come ?

Or grey is recessive ?

thanks

Both would be helpful but parents at least. Grey is dominant so if the chicks are grey then so is one of the parents.

Remembering that grey is an additive rather than its own colour. So all visually grey birds are blue birds with a grey additive,

Some grey's do show a lot of blue suffusion, and ino's are also known to show this suffusion. This could very well be what is happening with your ino hen, the grey is hidden by the ino, but because she is still a blue series bird the blue suffusion is showing through. .

Albinos and creaminos are always blue series (creaminos are yellowface blue). Lutinos are green series.

Grey can be added to blue or green series.

If the cock bird is not grey, then the albino hen must be masking blue-grey (with blue suffusion) in order to produce grey chicks.

Perhaps Muratyucel meant to say the chicks are greywings rather than greys?

Please post pictures of the parents and chicks.

The blue suffusion in an albino has nothing to do with it hiding, or not hiding grey. The blue suffision is cause by it being a blue series bird and that base colour not being completely diluted by the albino gene. To fix this we pair it with a dark factor bird, as pairing it with a grey does not effect the suffusion.
