Question Breeding a rainbow

Hello! So I was wondering if anyone knew what factors parent budgies had to be to produce a rainbow baby? I have one budgie who looks close to a rainbow, he's a dilute, and I was wondering if there was a way I could breed him and produce a budgie? What sort of hen would be best?


*I'm not going to go out and find a hen for him to breed with or anything, this is just me wondering if he could possibly produce a rainbow baby! His mom was a YF skyblue recessive pied, and his father was a skyblue greywing.

He is beautiful!

His mutation is sky blue, single factor goldenface, greyewing His face is too bright to be YF; do you have any photos of his mum?

A rainbow budgie is either clearwing or fullbody greywing sky blue goldenface or yellowface opaline.

If you paired him with a sky blue clearwing hen, who was opaline, you will get full body greywing chicks, and some may have his goldenface gene, but you couldn't get any true rainbows because even if the hen were opaline, none of the chicks would show it visually the first generation. The males of the clutch would be split for it, so if you were to breed them to an unrelated blue series opaline greywing, clearwing, or FBG hen, you could get rainbows
