Default Chick Mutations and Names??

Hi all

Below are my 2 oldest chicks out of 4. Have I got the mutations and colours right? Both Parents were Dominent Pied - I think!

Also we are trying to decide what to call them. Mum is Sky and Dad Cirrus so we would like to continue the Sky and Weather theme, but are stumped by these 2! Any suggestions very welcome

Blue Chick - Sky Blue Dominent Pied???





White Chick - Cobalt Blue Double Factor Dominent Pied???

I'm sorry, I can't help with the mutations. Here are some ideas for names though...

Aurora (as in Aurora Borealis)
Beaufort (as in the Beaufort Scale that indicates the wind speed using the effect wind has on certain familiar objects.) - Kind of a silly name, but could be cute
Breezy
Cyclone (good one for a trouble maker)
Chinook (as in Chinook Wind- A strong downslope wind that causes the air to warm rapidly as a result of compressive heating)
Cloud (could be cute for your white baby)
Cumulus
Drizzle
Gale (Sustained wind speeds from 34 to 47 knots (39 to 54 mph))
Gusty
Haze
Misty
Rain
Rossby (as in Rossby Waves- Long waves that form in air or water that flows almost parallel to the equator, which results form the effect of the earth's rotation.)
Stratus

Thanks pinksand - you have some new ideas for me there! I will add them to my list. I am going to need 2 more names in a few days time when the others colour up properly, so all help is gratefully received!

Ha ha! Hands off! I was desperate for a white one, and knew it was a possiblity with the pairing. I love him! (I have decided he is male, although I will probably be very wrong down the line!). He has a very cute personality too. The blue one is much cockier and very nippy! We are thinking hen from her personality, but will probably be wrong again!

I don't name my birds - so no help there, but they are lovely. I'm not sure about the first chick's mutation - looks more a clearflight pied to me, but then again I'm no expert on mutations.

Thank you. Not bad for our first go! The last 2 chicks are feathering up very different to these two but equally as gorgeous

We have decided on Capri for the blue one and Cloud for the white one

Can anyone help me with their mutations?

I think they are both cobalt, although the first one does look like it might be a little bit lighter.

And females.

But I don't know whether they are dominant pieds or clearflight pieds. Do you have any photos of their parents?

You probably have the mutations right if both parents are dominant pied
