Default Expert advice for a duffer please

Hi, I have 3 pairs that are beginning their breeding journey, I have a few ideas on their types, but not 100% sure. What mutations can expect if successful breeding takes place please.

Many thanks

Debbie

Dexter & Maddie


I've also got 2 other pairs who are bonded and have begun the breeding process.

Jasper & Connie

Joey & Flori


Many thanks in advance for your help.

Dexter & Maddie. Yellow face cobalt dominant pied male. Dark green female
Half of the chicks should inherit the dominant pied. If the green hen is not split for blue all the chicks will be green. If she is split for blue you'll get green, blue & yellow face

Jasper & Connie. Opaline dominant pied grey male. Opaline greywing sky blue female
The chicks would all be opaline. About half would also be dominant pied. They will be blue or grey

Joey & Flori. Spangle grey male. Yellow face cobalt female.
Half will be yellow face. About half will be spangle. You should get blue & grey in at least 2 shades of each

Other mutations could appear if the birds have hidden genes

They are nice looking budgies

Wow, thank you. It makes it all so much more exciting. I'm away at the minute on a training course so gutted I can't see for myself their development. Family is on constant updates with me so I am still 'going through it'
