Mom Lizzy (blue) and dad Jack (green) have hatched their first baby. Just curious what color combinations there might be.

You have a lovely pair and congratulations for the eggs!

The cock bird is a light green normal and I think the hen is a sky blue violet opaline. If so, the chick outcomes are:

Male chicks:
50% light green normal split to opaline
50% light green violet normal split to opaline

Female chicks:
50% light green normal
50% light green violet normal

If the cock bird is split to blue, you could get some sky blue or sky blue violet normal chicks with male chicks split to opaline.

Green is dominant to blue but a lot of greens are split to blue. :)

You could get blues. My pair is a sf green and blue spangle and two of my babies are blue spangle like daddy and the third turned out to be a yellow spangle. Don't lose hope yet, you could very well get blue

I'll love them no matter what, it's just getting hard to tell them apart upon first glance. LOL! My only other bonded pair have had two clutches and I've gotten 4 greens. Although the last one is my first tame baby so I can't complain. Color doesn't matter, it's all about their little personalities. But would be nice to see some color :)

We'll have to wait until their feathers begin to sprout. :)
