DEC - Ivory
So, I came upon this site when I was trying to learn more about budgie mutations.

And it says

The dark-eyed clear is actually a combination of recessive pied and clearflight pied.
Does this mean that Ivory is split for recessive pied and clearflight pied? I plan on breeding Louis and Ivory when they are old enough, which isn't in my near future, but I don't mind. :) I'm just trying to figure my little budgie's genes out. :P Louis is a Dominant Pied, or so I think. So, would they have pied babies?

I don't know about the recessive pied/clearflight pied question :p
But I can be sure that the dominant pied mutation is dominant (hence the name) over most mutations so any pieds you would get would be dominant pieds unless Louis is also split for r.pied.

dark eyed clears are recessive pieds (so two rec pied genes) and clearflight pied (so one or two clearflight genes) in one bird.

so ivory is not split for either of these but is both of them... if that makes sense.

if bred with a dominant pied you will get both clearflight pieds, dominant pieds, probably normals too but all split for recessive pied. and of course any other varieties they have, like yellow face, will pop up too..

If louis is a Double Factor dominant pied, i think all babies will be single factor dominant pied split for recessive and flight pied

clearflight pied is also a dominant variety so the chicks cannot be split for it... however they can be both dominant pied and clearflight pied!
