Default Guess the mutation

Well I have 4 baby budgies and I have no idea how they will look, so I decided to let you guys take a guess.

Here is a picture of the mom.(Plum)


And the dad.(Cabbage)


Here is a single picture of each of the 4 babies.
1st


2nd (Red Eyes)

4th


So lets see what you experts think I have on my hands. Thanks.

Ok...

So I'm guessing the most obvious ones - Chick 2 is a Lutino and Chick 3 is a Dominant Pied...

Well..Lutino.lol! I'm sure seeing a lot of yellow on all of your babies. I'm sure Nev, Pearce or one of our other mutation experts will be around soon.

Now that your ino is feathering out more it surely looks lutino. I look forward to seeing what Nev, Dean, etc have to say

Dont jump to the obvious conclusion of ino! If the chick has red eyes, then yes its an ino (and i also think its an ino girl, but too hard to judge from that pic).
However, the pictures of the parents dont clearly show their mutations so aside from the obvious dominant pied coming through, its difficult to say just yet. Also looks like the chicks have opaline down so we'll see.

Can you post pictures clearly showing the back and wings of the parents?

Okay the dad is a normal Green split for Ino and Opaline, and the mum a Cobalt Opaline Clearflight...

I'd guess an Opaline, a Lutino girl, and two Clearflight Pieds, all green series and split for blue.

By the way, those picture aren't recent are they? Because both parents are quite young in those pictures..if they aren't recent then good, I am just checking to make sure.

Woops lol. Didnt see that you had posted "red eyes" above the second chick lol.

Dad would have to be a normal green split opaline and ino then. Doesnt look like he is split for blue as all chicks are green series.

Jen has it right so i wont repeat what she has said about the chicks, although i think there are more opalines then she suspects. Havent got time to see for sure.
