I also have a blue/white pied hen I could fix Tony up with,
would pairing the cobalt self and the violet spangle produce all cobalt and violet chicks with half being spangle?
what would the blue/white pied paired with grey/white pied produce?
do I have all there mutations correct??? from what can be seen...
Tony is a double factor dominant pied grey and he may be opaline as well but it's hard to see in the small photo.
Maria is an opaline cobalt.
The other pied hen is a double factor dominant pied sky blue.
If you paired the opaline cobalt hen with the violet spangle cock (if he is not split for opaline) you'd get:
12.5% cobalt spangle
12.5% violet cobalt
12.5% violet cobalt spangle
6.25% sky blue
6.25% sky blue spangle
6.25% violet sky blue
6.25% violet sky blue spangle
6.25% mauve spangle
6.25% violet mauve
6.25% violet mauve spangle
All the male chicks would be split for opaline
The two pieds paired together would produce
50% blue double factor dominant pied
50% grey double factor dominant pied
If Tony is also opaline the female chicks would be opaline as well as the pied
The shades of blue & grey would depend on the dark factor of the grey cock (the hen has no dark factor)
