Default Can you visually Identify splits?

Hi, I was just wondering can you visually identify splits in Budgies? If so I'm wondering if My male is split to anything.

I also noticed in certain lighting my Albino female has a light silvery blue tent to some of her feathers. I couldn't even catch the color on camera if I tried because its so light its barley noticeable only in certain light.

I know she is a blue series. I was just wondering about the blue showing wouldn't that mean she's not a true Albino?

Here are some pictures of the male. I know he is a Yellowface cobalt dominate pied.

The only recognizable split I know of is a pied thumbprint on the back of a normal budgie's head. Attached is a picture of my double factor yellow face 1 normal sky blue cock bird. He has a small pied thumbprint on the back of his head. I know he's split to recessive pied because he produced several recessive pied chicks (all of whom are yellow face 1).

Sometimes the blue peeks through the clear.

Albinos aren't split to blue (unless having 2 blue genes is considered "blue split to blue"); they are blue.

I agree he's a yellow face (probably type 2) dominant pied cobalt. I don't see any recognizable splits in him.

The last picture is adorable!

Thanks. The last Picture is my favorite. They follow each other around everywhere and scream for each other when separated. Its really cute when they preen each other it looks like their in love.

Could you tell me what the chicks would be for when and If I breed them? I tried using the genetic calculator but it confuses me.

In the middle pic he looks green on one side and blue on the other... Or is it just the lighting? He looks like a halfsider!

I don't think he's a halfsider but in some light he does look like it. Here are some more pictures.
