Default what colour female to go with my male?

My male is blue and been confirmed on here as a spangle.

Id like an albino female to put with him in the future, but what would the outcome of the babies be if they bred? I dont really mind what they are, just want to check that it would be OK as I like the albinos!

Thanks

If you breed a spangle, opaline, blue male to an albino female you would get...
100% blue chicks
50% normal males
50% spangle males
100% males split for albino
100% opaline females
50% spangle females
no albino females

You may get some other mutations if either of the birds are split them.

LOL Catherine, you've fallen into the trap of.... What a cute budgie! Oooh i love you my new baby budgie Hmm i wonder what two budgies will be like.... Ill definitely get another budgie i think

Haha and it wond dtop at two, soon you'll have 4, 6, 10.... they are addictive, these little budgies are

Im sure i dont need to say it really.... But make sure you read up on QUARRANTINE if you do buy another budgie, and also read up on breeding before you decide you want to start (also wait till both budgies are at least 1 year old before breeding)
Sorry, but i'm no help with colour mutations and breeding

LOL I guess I do break it down differently than you do but it seems to be easy to understand. And I'm assuming I was correct with the mutations?

Thanks, turn that round, the blue spangle opaline is now a girl! Is that the same percentage results with pairing HER to an albino male?

So the above means, there will be normal males, spangle males, any opalines will only be female and spangle females. What does the males split for albino mean, all males are carrying albino?

Was always going to get another one for her company, am waiting to tame her first

Thanks alot!

No, the result is going to be different:
Males: 50% blue/ ino opaline; 50% blue spangle/ ino opaline
Females: 50 % albino; 50% albino spangle
The albino spangle is going to look just as a normal albino. we say that the ino gene is masking the spangle - it is there, but you can't see it. Masking is not the same as split.

It is not so difficult; whats difficult for me is to identify the mutations and that's mainly because I am doing mostly colony breeding and one is never sure who the father is - sometimes you don't even know who the mother is.
Normal blue x normal green = 100 % green/blue.The sex doesn't matter.
