Default chick outcomes for this pair

I recently introduced a hen to my boy budgie, Cobalt (Now nicknamed Shaq, because my boyfriend insists hahaha) Shes albino, red eyes and all, and I believe he is a Colbalt opaline (theres a pic of him on my page) -but check to make sure. I was curious if anyone could tell me the possible color outcomes if they were to have babies in the future. My boy is such a sweet heart to her. I was so worried before I got her, but all is going so well!

The problem with trying to predict outcomes from an albino is that the albino mutation can hide most other mutations. If she is not masking any other mutations & the opaline cobalt male is not split for anything you'd get:

Opaline blue females
Normal blue males

The chicks will include at least 2 & possibly 3 shades of blue. All the males will be split for opaline & ino
To get any albinos the cock bird would have to be split for ino

I've noticed that my white female sometimes has a shimmer of iridescent blue when in specific lighting. do they all have this or is it a different mutation? she is completely white. does that have an effect on the babies.

many albinos have a blue sheen, it doesn't affect the possible chicks you would get.

nev is so good at this stuff i am going to go with what he said for chick outcomes!!

I wish I was good, I just haven't had any experience with budgie genetics yet, I just learn from reading stuff you guys post! :]

In the past I bread a normal green boy with a sky blue opaline girl and they had three chicks. One was Identical to the mother, and the others were sky blue pied and green pied. Since then I've wanted to learn.
