Default ? about opalines

Okay so I am arranging to get a hand fed budgie but he is a couple of states over. I have a choice of two. One who I think is a male and the other I think is female. I am pretty good at sexing baby budgies. But not seeing them in person and in a pic always makes things a bit harder to tell for sure. So...... the one I think is male is an opaline. I know this is a big female trait. I was wondering how often you get opaline males..... and or if someone could explain the opaline trait more in depth for me. Because I'm pretty sure the cute little ****** is male

Opaline is sex-linked so females are more common than males. A male opaline must have a visual opaline mother because to get an opaline male the gene must come from both parents and a female must be visual to carry the gene.

If the mother is not an opaline you can be sure the chick is not a male. If she is opaline there is a 50% chance that the chick is a male
