Default Good Choice on breeding partners?

Hey!
I think I have decided on who I am breeding this season. I now have a new breeding cage, so can breed two pairs at once. An estimated 4 clutches per cage is about 8 pairs. What do you guys think on my choice of pairs? Breeding outcomes?

1st pair
Charlie X Squeak= Dominant Pied (possibly double factor) X Cobalt spangle=


2nd pair
Crumble X Archie = Opaline YF Blue (I think) X YF Green Clearflight =


3rd pair
Amore X Angel = YF Normal Grey X White lacewing spangle =


4th pair
Foxtrot X Phantom = WF Grey Spangle X Double Factor Spangle =


5th pair (May not happen if Melon is girl)
Foxtrot X Melon = WF Grey Spangle X YF Light green Cinnamon Spangle split to lacewing =



6th Pair
Medusa X Phantom = YF Cinnamon Light Green X Double Factor Spangle



7th Pair
Apollo X Candy = I have bred them before and got Some really nice chicks..Hoping for an ino



And here are some spare ones.. ,Any suggestions?






And here are some of my breeding cages (both identical):

What do you mean by 'nice colours'? Depends on what you are after really. Without knowing that i cant really give thoughts on pairings although i do notice you have a lot of spangles. So if you dont want a lot of double factor or even single factor spangles, your pairings are a bit limited.

Share some more information regarding desired colours, mutations and outcomes.

The main colours I am aiming for would be cinnamons. I am hoping to get a Ino from Candy and Apollo. I also wouldn't mind some pied's, green spangles, blue spangles, violet spangle's and a clearflight if that is possible.

Thankyou! I really am only breeding those two because Squeak, my darling first budgie is nearly 3 and I want to carry on his gene's until I die . I will always handraise the first budgie of the first clutch
