Default Mutation?

Hello I have a chick that I am curious to know what others think. I believe she is an opaline cinnamon. With flash she looks cinnamon and if in not mistaken the cinnamon gene can wash 50% of the body colour out like dilute. Thanks in advance. In the picture of her and her siblings in the nest box, the one in question is right in the front on the right. Excuse the dirty nest box I took the picture right before cleaning the box.

All babies are opaline. Also... What about the blue baby is he spangle? Or is he just a normal. I think just normal and the only male of the clutch. Thanks!

Congratulations on your beautiful chicks!
The one in question doesn't look like a cinnamon, actually. I think she looks more greywing, opaline. Even cinnamon opalines (both genes which dilute the body colour by about 20%) don't have that faint of markings. Do you have any closer pictures of her or ones taken in natural light to comfirm?

The blue one is a sky blue, yellowface II, opaline. He's not spangle Unless the mother is visual opaline as well as the father being visual or split he cannot be male.

Hope to see more of your babies

Here are mom and dad.

Dad is a visual opaline spangle.
Mom I believe is a yellow face opaline df dominant pied.

They are red/pink from an apple flavour mineral block.

He does look male in that picture, and it's definitely possible since both parents are opaline What a cutie! He's going to look just like my girl when he's older

Chick 2 could be male, it's hard to tell without pictures in natural light. S/he is also dominant pied Chick 3 is dominant pied, as well Definitely a girl!

Chick 4 chick in question. Now that you say that she could be greywing but man she's light in color. Her body color is hard to tell from her yellow.
Mom could be split greywing as her father was split to it. Father I do not know about any hidden splits and it's his first time having babies.

Female opaline and either dilute/greywing or cinnamon????

I would say definitely greywing, opaline from these new pictures It's such a coincidence both parents were split to greywing, what a gorgeous baby
