Default Pairing Questions & Breeding Direction

Hello everybody,

So I am pleased to say I am now a little bit practiced in breeding and understand the process.

Solid normal colours are a given but I want to focus on the following: Spangle, Opaline, Yellowface, Dominant Pied

If I can run through my breeding birds at the moment I have:

Males:

Split Cinnamon Yellowface II
Skyblue Male
Skyblue Spangle
Cinnamon Skyblue Male
Grey Green Dominant Pied
Cinnamon Skyblue Dominant Pied

Females:

Cinnamon Skyblue Recessive Pied
Grey Green
Skyblue Spangle
Cinnamon Light Green

I'm thinking, because of the nature of Opaline, that I must get a pair of Opalines and then intergrate it into my birds later.

Now to my issue at hand. I have an awesome male to an awesome female but the pairing isn't working. The pairing is the Cinnamon Skyblue Male to the Grey Green Female. I'm now considering whether I need to buy another hen and re-pair her to another male as it is just not working. I'm also wondering if it is wise to pair the male to the Skyblue Spangle female?

Just a little unsure of small things right now so comments and suggestions are welcome

Thank you so much.

~SASB

Hi there

I have indeed. It was more a directional question.

I've decided to put my Spangle to Spangle. Then I am waiting for my Split Cinnamon Yellowface male and Cinnamon Skyblue Recessive Pied to finish with babies, and they can go into retirement, and pair up maybe my Cinnamon Skyblue male with maybe a Grey hen. Have spoken to a breeder and hopefully he will get back to me soon.

So will see!

I just wanted thoughts from others.

Spangle and yellowface are both dominant mutations, so technically you could get both spangles and yellow faces if you pair up your yellowface cock and spangle hen

If you want more opaline but don't want to take on too many new birds at once, I would definitely recommend getting an opaline male. All female chicks descended from opaline males will have a 100% chance of expressing with opaline, regardless of the mother's genealogy.

Keep in mind that an all-spangle pairing yields only 50% SF spangle (which is what is typically perceived as "spangle"), along with 25% wildtype and 25% DF spangle (completely yellow or white).
