There are quite a few genetic calculators around but they are mostly limited to basic mutations and most of our birds are a combination of mutations. Also it pays to have some knowledge of genetics to interpret the results. Learning to use most of these caculators is harder than learning how genetic inheritance works. When working out the expected offspring calulate each mutation separately then combine the result
Here's one that works reasonably well but it has got the yellow face wrong and it includes some uncommon mutations and has missed some common ones

It is so much easier to just learn the traits of the different mutations and how they are reproduced when breeding. I've never used one of those calculators, they are too confusing to me

Once you learn which mutations are dominant and recessive, just break down each one when trying to figure out the babies. I promise it will keep you from getting such a big headache in the end.

When I was first starting out, I used Barrie Shutts website. VERY INFORMATIVE! I think it is a must have for anyone breeding budgies! https://www.officialbarrieshuttbudger...pectations.htm

What does sf and df mean? And looking at the calculator what is male and what is female 1.0 and 0.1?

I think sf and df refer to single and double factor, pass on the second question!

Personally I wouldn't bother but quite a few questions about it have been answered on this thread. https://www.talkbudgies.com/showthrea...tic+calculator if you have any more questions about it ask away
