I would say she's olive or grey-green, it's hard to tell since her cheek patches are white because of the spangle, and her tail feathers are yellow.

If her chicks are grey or grey-green, then she's grey green, and if not, she is olive

She's beautiful

Unfortunately she passed away a few months back she only had two chicks, a lutino girl and white df spangle male.

I only bred the df male and I got a visual Violet cinnamon opaline clear flight pied hen, his partner was a spangle Yello face Cobalt clear flight pied female.

I'm sorry to hear that

Have you bred her daughter?

If you bred her with a cobalt male you'd get chicks that were in her shade of green (assuming she's olive). However, depending on how many dark factors her father had that's kind of up in the air.

My best guess for right now is olive green

now that you've mentioned it, I did bred the lutino daughter with a yellowface skyblue sf pied male and I got yellowface spangle cobalt clearflight pied hen (see attached pics #1&2)

Was the cobalt hen the only chick?

If all the chicks in that clutch were cobalt, she was definitely olive Her daughter is gorgeous!

yes, the cobalt granddaughter was the only chick, she is great, my only grip on her that she only lays two eggs per clutch with only one being fertile.

In that case it's safe to assume olive for sure; maybe the egg thing is from her mum as she was the only chick from the olive female's clutch as well.

That's right, I've never thought about it .
is there a way to stimulate her to lay more than two?

Thanks for your help by the way, much appreciated.

Of course!

Maybe she has trouble retaining calcium, which would make sense as that's genetic. If you don't already give her calcium supplements, I would. Other than that I'm not really sure what it would be since you already have them on such good breeding diets!
