The 1st chick is 8 weeks old today! They are hopping and climbing away happily. Taiyou the Albino and chick #4 seem to have french moult the worst. Chick #6 is the only one with a semi tail. Can anyone advise genetics and male/female please?
Parents Cinnamon and Charlie
Quote: By looking at the pictures you have an Albino and Lutino meaning your Cock is split Ino, you also have Greywings?(or clearwing I can't fully tell) which would be from the Cock again, and also Spangles which I would also say your Cock is. If you can take a picture of the back of the Cock bird it would help.
Quote: so those four tell us that the dad is a spangle and is split for ino and the mum is split for blue.
Does the dad have any white patches on his body, the lower feathers looked a bit white inthe pictures? if so he is a dom pied also and the green spangle will be dom pied too. if he has not pied patches the chick is split rec pied, and one of the parents is too (they could have a head spot too).
The other two look like dilutes to me, which would mean both parents have the dilute gene too! the dad looks quite pale so maybe he is dilute and the hen is split dilute? but maybe they are cinnamon
Greywings... someone with more experience may be able to tell...
So the parents could be:
hen - greygreen cinnamon/blue, dilute? and rec pied?
cock - cobalt? spangle dilute?/ino and rec pied?
I have a photo of their backs but it isn't loaded yet
Chick #1 - m/f? - some kind of green dilute spangle/ clearwing?
Chick #2 m/f? - Cobalt Spangle
Chick #3 female albino
Chick #5 female???? lutino
Chick #4 m/f? -some kind of blue dilute spangle / clearwing?
Chick #6 m/f? - Dark Green Spangle?
She is camera shy and I'll need to upload a better photo
Many thanks for your help.
