Default Baby outcome

So, 2 of my budgies decided to breed unexpectantly and I was just wondering how the babies would turn out. I have a breeding journal on them. I know nothing of the parent of my birds. Got one from a rescue and one was given to me. I have some pictures. I know nothing about budgie mutations really so I thought I would ask.

Bluebell the female


Sky the male


Thanks for any help.

going solely by their colours as you have no background...

the hen looks like an violet skyblue opaline and the cock a skyblue normal.

so i would expect skyblue normals and violet skyblue normals. like dad but some with mums body colour.

cant really tell th colours, cos mum looks either violet, or cobalt,but not sure

mum looks opaline to me, so all her sons will be splite for opaline, if dad is split for opaline, then half of all the chicks will be opaline also

hen looks like a violet skyblue opaline. cock is a skyblue.

blue is a recessive gene. therefore all the babies would be blue
violet is a dominant gene. if the hen is single factor violet, then half of the babies would be violet skyblues. if double factor violet then all babies would be violet skyblues.
opaline is a sexlinked gene. the female will pass it to all the male chicks making them split for opaline. IF the male is split for opaline, he would pass the opaline gene to half of the chicks of both sexes. if so you would have opalines of both sexes.
by the way, your budgies are very beautiful and i am sure they would produce as pretty birds as they are. good luck

Thanks everyone for the compliments and answers. Sounds like you guys have a somewhat similar guess on what the babies will be. Sounds good to me. Thanks again. I'm going to post another thread on my other female Camilla. I can tell she has cinnamon in her, but most of her body is white with some sky blue patches, and her head is what is really weird. It's kind of like a yellow face would be, but hers has a tint of pink/violet so from the top of her head down to below her cheeks is pinkish/purplish. Anyways I'll post a thread on her.
