Hi there. You should expect 50% cobalts, 50% sky blues, about half will be yellow face, half will be spangle, and you will know early which ones are hens because they will all be opaline. All the males will be split for opaline (carry one copy of the opaline gene, but you will not be able to see it on the bird because males require 2 copies of opaline to visually look opaline) but will not look opaline. Does that make sense?

The expected outcome from cobalt spangle hen mated to a yellowface skyblue opaline **** is:
6.25% opaline cobalt females
6.25% opaline sky blue females
6.25% opaline spangle cobalt females
6.25% opaline spangle sky blue females
6.25% yellow face opaline cobalt females
6.25% yellow face opaline sky blue females
6.25% yellow face opaline spangle cobalt females
6.25% yellow face opaline spangle sky blue females
6.25% normal cobalt males
6.25% normal sky blue males
6.25% spangle cobalt males
6.25% spangle sky blue males
6.25% yellow face normal cobalt males
6.25% yellow face normal sky blue males
6.25% yellow face spangle cobalt males
6.25% yellow face spangle sky blue males
(the males will all be split for opaline)

If you get any other types it will be because the birds have genes that we don't know about for other mutations
