Default What are they?

Another lerning experience to test your observation and knowledge.

Nest of five chicks rangeing from 11 days to 3 days old. Parents are a Clearwing Violet(sf) Cobalt cock and a Dk Green/Clearwing, Blue Type II.

At this point the mutations of the oldest two can be seen. So lets see who can figure out what they are and why.

Chick #1 is a normal YF1.
Chick #2 is a clearwing YF1.

Great babies looking good, all of them.

You reminded me of one of my teachers in the college who always went beyond duty lines and gave us assignments which really helped us comprehend the subject.

At this stage, no, I donít have any idea.

But I am absolutely sure that these are either Clearwings or Dilutes or Goldenfaces.




(I know you are working on Clearwings, Dilutes and Goldenfaces mutations these days)

Hi RIPBudgies,

I thought for the fun..I'll try my luck on these forecast of chicks...

Chicks 1, 3 & 4 - Opaline Cobalt Clearwing (could be Hens; Opaline coming from "Clearwing dad");
Chick 2 - Light-Green Clearwing
Chick 5 - too young...lets say Dark green just cause his brother (chick 2) is Green series?

YF- the faces I can't tell yet...but Chick 1 doesn't appear to be YF in the photo supplied...?
U did say "Clearwings"...

Do let us know the result...are this an old hatch...with U already knowing the answer?....

else..it could be good if you "disclose" ...this "puzzle-question" piece by piece...by offering later (but not weaned) older baby pictures

At least we've got a better chance of being correct then?
Enjoy!
Jacodk

apologies (to those that have seen this) ..for double-post...bad server connection..

Ah, I see now the Hen is a "Dark Green"...BUT well also "Blue Type II"...

Am I correct then in understanding that this is a "Double-factored" White (Blue)-series bird with YF Mutant II..?..therefore the "Green" description (arising from the YF gene influence on Blue-base body colour), but she's actually a White (Blue)-series...not Green/Blue?!

If so then I guess that the chicks with the Opaline gene 1, 3 and 4 will also be YF...at least there will be a high percentage (~50%) having a single or double dark factor in Blue (with Violet in some), but the "Cobalt" from dad will give some the DF colour in chicks...blue chicks then ONLY coming from the fact that Hen is split blue ("/Blue")...

If not, then chick 2 will indeed be a "Yellow-series" Green bird....and all of rest will be "Yellow" (Green)-series Clearwings as well (recessive clearwings only possible, cause both dad & mom has the clearwing gene) ....[whilst chicks will show Blue visually only if mom is "/Blue" or "normal Blue", the latter doesn't appear applicable]...

C U!

Did anyone got it correct?

Thx...jdk

Oooooo, a brainteaser! I'll say Chick #1 is blue due to gray down and Chick #2 is green due to white down.
