Talking What Colour Chicks?

Heya guys!

I already made a thread asking questions about breeding, and now that I know quite a bit, I want to know the colour of my future fids!

The momma is white/blue and the dad is green/black/yellow. Mommy has an Iris Ring, so I think she is a Recessive Pied. In the pictures, mommy's colour is not so prominent as she does not allow me to take many pictures.

They have laid a clutch of 5 eggs, out of which one has hatched JUST yesterday. Check out my breeding journal too, I'm quite excited about it!!

Both the parent's are wild, but I am planning on removing the chicks everyday for a few minutes once they are 10 days old to get them used to humans.

So, can you guess the colours with the picutures attached?

Thanks in advance for your help, you guys are AMAZING!

Because the mum has an iris ring, it means she is not a rec. pied. This is what I think, with no splits counted

I am guesisng hen sky blue dom. pied (df or sf)
and cock bird normal green.

So from that I think you will get (assunming mum is sf) normal greens and green pieds. (all split blue)

Your hen looks like a double factor dominant pied sky blue but the picture is not good enough to be certain. The cock is a normal dark green.
Unless the cock is split for blue the chicks will be green dominant pieds

I have to ask,,because in understanding mutations scale, with one end being expert and the other being ,, well,, clueless.. I lean far away from expert.. lol..anyway since the dad is green you get green dom pied,, ok,, the yellow is due to his green base color, and white would be if the base color if he was blue?? next,, is pied dominant over normal? I ask because I would have thought 50% would be normal and 50% pied. why will they all be pied??

I agree with Mikev. Single factor dominant pied hen mates with a normal cock will result in half dominant pieds and half normals provided both parents do not have any hidden genes.

If the mother hen is a double factor dominant pied, the results will be entirely different. In this case, all chicks will be single factor dominant pieds and 0% normals. Also assuming both parents are not split for any mutation.

Please show a picture or two of the mother hen with a backview.
