I have a yen for Spangles, so maybe the double factor spangle with the Cobalt? I love the contrast of bright blue body and spangled wings! Since spangle is dominant, all the babes would be visibly spangled, right? Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. I find this interesting but don't know much!

Pictures would be better :) Dont take my word for it.

It depends what you want to produce. You could try them like this:


Lutino **** paired with the Albino hen. This would produce all ino chicks and if the lutino is split for blue you'd get about half each of lutino & albino

YF DF Spangle **** paired with the Cobalt hen. Chicks would be all be single factor spangles and about half would be yellow face

Opaline Cobalt **** paired with the VioletSky Blue hen. You'd get Opaline hens & normal cocks. Half would inherit violet and they would include both sky blue & cobalt

VioletSky Blue **** paired with the Violet Spangle Dominant Pied. hen. You'd would expect: dominant pied, spangle, normal & spangle dominant pied chicks. About 50% should be single factor violet, 25% double factor violet & 25% with no violet

YF Skyblue **** paired with the YF Albino hen. Results from this pair would depend on what mutations the albino is masking & what mutations the **** is spit for. If they are both the same yellow face type you'd get 50% single factor yellow face, 25% double factor yellow face & 25% nornal white face
