I have a yen for Spangles, so maybe the double factor spangle with the Cobalt? I love the contrast of bright blue body and spangled wings! Since spangle is dominant, all the babes would be visibly spangled, right? Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. I find this interesting but don't know much!

It depends what you want to produce. You could try them like this:


Lutino cock paired with the Albino hen. This would produce all ino chicks and if the lutino is split for blue you'd get about half each of lutino & albino

YF DF Spangle cock paired with the Cobalt hen. Chicks would be all be single factor spangles and about half would be yellow face

Opaline Cobalt cock paired with the VioletSky Blue hen. You'd get Opaline hens & normal cocks. Half would inherit violet and they would include both sky blue & cobalt

VioletSky Blue cock paired with the Violet Spangle Dominant Pied. hen. You'd would expect: dominant pied, spangle, normal & spangle dominant pied chicks. About 50% should be single factor violet, 25% double factor violet & 25% with no violet

YF Skyblue cock paired with the YF Albino hen. Results from this pair would depend on what mutations the albino is masking & what mutations the cock is spit for. If they are both the same yellow face type you'd get 50% single factor yellow face, 25% double factor yellow face & 25% nornal white face
