Default What colour do you think this little baby will be?

Hi everyone. Two of our budgies have hatched an egg and it is just adorable. Just wanting a prediction of what colour we can expect it to be?

Here is the mother:



Here is the father:



Here they are together:




We do not have any idea what the dad's parents were, but here is a picture of the mother's parents:




So if somebody could please let us know what you think the baby might be, it would be appreciated! We are very very excited Here is a picture of the little baby :

I'm not a mutations expert, but I'll give this a shot until Nev comes along.

The hen is opaline olive and the cock bird is recessive pied light green.

All the male chicks will be normal dark green split for opaline and all the female chicks will be normal dark green. See https://www.****************/gen_opaline.html for opaline genetics and https://www.****************/gen_darkfactor.html for dark factor genetics.

Your only chance for blue chicks is if both hen and cock bird are split for blue.

Your only chance for recessive pied chicks is if the hen is split for recessive pied. I don't know how opaline and recessive pied react with each other.

Congratulations for your little pink cutie! Have you candled the other eggs?

I think Susan is right woth her predictions, but the hen can be split for RP - although the chances are very slim. There's always a chance for surprises. Congrats on the first baby. Keep us updated, please.

Originally, I said the hen can't be split for recessive pied -- which is why Dries made his corrective comment. But then I edited my post.

Dries, I added my opinion regarding blues. What do you think?

These pictures are beautiful. Hope I see correctly through the camera.

Hen = olive opaline normal
Cock = dark green opaline dominant pied (iris ring)

Offsprings = 50% normals and 50% dominant pieds, all opalines with half olive green and half dark green

No assumption of hidden genes in the above calculation.

Yikes! I missed the iris rings. Good catch, Jimm.

Perhaps cock bird is opaline double factor dominant pied as evidenced by large clear areas? https://www.****************/colorsgui...l#dominantpied

The cock bird looks like an opaline green series double factor dominant pied
The hen is an opaline green (she looks grey green but can't be from those parents)

So most likely the chick will be an opaline green single factor dominant pied.
