Here are some updated pis of the babies. The little one in question seems to be coming in a very handsome grey :) I love how his tail feathers are white and then turn to black at the ends. I would love some help identifying the other two. The yellow has no other color but yellow and the facial markings are white (some type of ino?). The Black (looks a bit sinnamon to me now) and white I believe is a sky blue pied like its mom as there are blue feathers popping through here and there.

Also could anyone help me figure out what the parents are carrying for genetics b/c the only color I expected from them was the normal green and pieds. The mother is a sky blue dom. pied and father is olive green normal.

Pics wouldn't attach for some reason so I attached a link to them on another site.

hi there,

it is hard to tell fromthose angles but it looks like youare right; a grey, a pied (i can't tell the colour, though it looks more like a recessive pied to me so far..) and possibly a lutino (if it has red eyes).

for the parents to give a grey i suspect that your olive **** is actually a grey green and he will be split for ino if that chick is a lutino. if he is olive his cheek patches will be violet, and his tail blue. if he is grey green his cheek patches will be blue or grey and his tail more black.

The first one looks like a normal grey. If the second one has red eyes it is a lutino. The third one looks to me like an opaline dominant pied.

I agree with Toni that your **** bird is probably a grey green rather than olive. The chicks show that he is split for blue, ino & opaline (if I'm right about the 3rd chick and also provided you are not colony breeding)

thanks, I am not colony breeding. if you follow that link again I actually posted pics of the parents. The yellow does not have red eyes. Someone suggested possible dark eyed clear or double cominant pied? I am still waiting for a few more feathers. :)

sorry looks like the link is gone, sorry i can't get this sites uploader to work.
