Default Issue with the Genetics Calculator?

I have paired up Skittles, my Lutino male with Bandit. I plugged in all their genetics to the calc, and it's showing me that 100% of the females with be lutino.

Even if I enter in JUST lutino male, and no mutation for the female, it still comes out 100% lutino female chicks.

Every other genetics article that I have read indicates that only 50% of the female chicks will be Lutino.

Did I miss something? Or am I just not unerstanding it correctly?

1.0 Ino
x 0.1 green

% from all 1.0
100.0% 1.0 green /ino

% from all 0.1
100.0% 0.1 ino

That's correct, from this specific pairing all females will be visual Inos because the father is a visual Ino (sex-link mutation).
The chicks can be lutino or albino if both parents are split for blue.
If the father were a normal split for Ino, that's where you could get normal females as well as Ino females.

With this pairing you will be able able to tell from hatching whether you have males (black eyes) or females (red eyes). It will be really easy.
All the male chicks will be split for Ino.

From Lindsey's Website

Ino Expectations - Cute Little Birdies Aviary

Your Pair
Male - INO
Female - Normal

Chick Outcomes
Males - 50% Normal/INO
Females - 50-% INO


So is this incorrect? A few other articles and websites that I've read says the same thing. Which is why I'm confused (Or maybe this is my normal state LOL)

Albino Budgie - Lutino Budgie

Ino cock x Normal hen =

-50% Normal/Ino cocks
-50% Ino hens




I believe the Calc and Aluz. And I just read a great article about INO's that went full depth into it, and even it concluded that all females will be INO.

So, why the confusion in the budgie world of genetics? Why aren't we all on the same page? (Just food for thought)

The way I interpret it, the 50% stated in that case was taking in account a mix clutch of males and females (both genders making the 100% full clutch).
The 50% is for all females in the clutch while the other 50% is for the males and where in this case all males will be split for Ino.

Well that's a simple answer that totally makes sense!

I didn't look at it that way.

Thanks!

I'm glad Aluz was able to help you figure it out, Michelle!

As a point of interest, when any male has a visual sex-linked gene, it means that both his X-chromosomes have the gene so every female in the clutch will show it, since they inherit their only X chromosome from their father
