Default What are the expected mutations??

Dear All,

I am very happy to be a member in this forum, I just knew it 3 days ago, and it added a lot of information to me regarding the budgies....

Well,
I have 2 pairs and they have started to lay eggs (it seems they are competing)

This is the hen of the first pair.


This is the cook.




==============
==============

I could not get a picture of the hen for the second pair, but its color is exactly like the first hen above.

This is the cook for the second pair.




============

Both of the hens are sisters, and the color of the parents is exactly same as first hen above.


regards,

They are beautiful birds and should produce some very beautiful chicks.

First pair:
I can’t see enough of the hen to see if she has clear flight feathers or not, but it would make quite a difference to the result. From what I can see she is a light green opaline spangle. The cock is a dark green dominant pied

If the cock bird is not split for opaline you would get about 25% each of dominant pied, spangle, normal & combination dominant pied spangle. The chicks would be all green series unless both birds are split for blue. If they are both split for blue you’d expect about 25% blue series. Opaline will only appear in the chicks if the cock bird has an opaline gene

Second pair:
Sky blue opaline dominant pied cock to light green opaline spangle hen (assuming the hen is not also dominant pied)

Expected chicks: Opaline spangle, Dominant pied opaline spangle, Opaline Dominant pied & just opaline. If the hen is split for blue you’d get half each of blue and green series, if she is not split for blue then the chicks will be all green series.

It is possible that the birds are carrying genes for other mutations that could affect the result

Thank you very much, really appreciated!
I think I will get alot of colors this time

If this would help, another picture of the hen, showing the wing color,


And I dont think the hens are split for blue, cause the parent color was exactly same as the hens, the parents gave 4 hens with all same color.

It looks like the hen is opaline cinnamon and not opaline spangle. Cinnamon is a sex-linked mutation and it will only effect the chick's colour if the cock birds have a cinnamon gene. If the hens are not spangle you'll need to take spangle out of my predictions.

Your second cock bird looks very young or is that an old picture?
