Is it possible?
Its been long time since I posted a thread, but I am always around reading;)
Anyway, I have a normal skyblue cock and a skyblue spangle hen
These two produced me in the first round 6 sky blue chicks (hens & cocks)
Second round produced 5 chicks (2 normal skyblue and 3 spangle skyblue)
Thired round produced 7 chicks (2 normal skyblue, 3 spangle skyblue, 1 clearbody skyblue, 1 spangle clearbody sky blue)
Now how it is possible I got 2 clearbodies, I am sure the cock is not split for clearbody cause if he is, all hens would have been clearbody...
I would attach some photos tomorrow....
Here are the pictures
the last are shot with flash
Second one, seems to me a spangle clearbody
and I think both of them are males....
I know nothing about mutations but wanted to say that your budgies are gorgeous! :D
How can I see the pics? All that I see is an ice cube with a frog inside. The message say register to view image, but where do I register?
Basic Genetics of a clear body
Normal - sex-linked (x-chromosome), dominant to Clearbody - sex-linked, dominant to
Ino - sex-linked recessive
just because you got a couple now does not mean he isn't split to it - I've had males split to cinnamon and not get any cinnamon's from them until their 8th or 9th clutch (with different females none of who was cinnamon)
some times a bird can be split to a mutation and it just never show up but it'll show up down the line with their babies.
I've had it happen also with males split to Opaline and Ino as well.
The cock bird is split for clearbody which is how these chicks have been produced, they are both hens as they can only be as clearbody is a sex linked gene and the hen is not a clearbody.
very cute budgies! love the colors!
healthy foods makes nice colors, thanks:D

Thanks for the great info, this would make sense alot...
I thought that if the cock is split, all female chicks would be his split gene, but after reading your posts, its just like how the ino gene work
and moreover, if clearbody is dominant to ino, then if I paired this split cock to an ino hen, there is a better chance that I would get some clearbody cocks, right?
So if you breed your hens in the future pair them to either a split clearbody cock or a visual clearbody cock in order to get clearbody cocks.
