Default is he gre/white pied ??

Not sure who to fix up with who, I think tony is a grey/white pied and I was going to pair him with Maria, a cobalt self,



but now I am thinking of pairing Maria with Banner, a violet spangle. Looks blue in the pic, but its very violet.



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...

The powers that be will be on shortly with mutation info but I just had to say those will be some beautiful chicks. I would go for the spangle man. Assumming Maria obliges

It all depends on what mutations you want you chicks yo have. It would be great to see Tony's wings so I could tell what type of pied he is. Personally I would pair Tony up a hen like Banner. the combination of spangle and a pied has always caught my eye. The chicks body color will most likely be grey/cobalt/violet.

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
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
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)

"The powers that be" -- that's a cute phrase to describe the mutations experts.

here are a few more pics to help to see if Tony is opaline, I think he is, but Nev, why do you think Maria is opaline cobalt?? I understand the cobalt part, just what makes her opaline???
Just Maria


Maria and tony from the back


And Echo from the back


Thanks for all the help,,,So far it looks like Tony and Maria are keen on each other and Banner and echo are a thing, but Echo is a tough girl so Banner has some serious woo'in to do. lol
