What is his mutation? I have been told it is opaline greywing and also been told it is opaline clearwing. What is the difference between the two?

If he were to breed with this female, what chicks would they produce?



Her mum:



Her dad:



Her parents have produced blue, green and yellow chicks (all with yellow faces but not sure if it counts as 'yellowface')

The **** bird is opaline clearwing. Bright cheek patches & bright body color with muted wing markings show it is clearwing. Greywings have diluted color and more definite grey wing markings

The hen is a green series opaline lacewing. She has not inherited spangle from her dad

If neither bird has any genes that cannot be seen in either them or their parents the chicks will all be opaline green. To get any blue series chicks the hen would have to be split for blue. The clearwing gene is recessive so to get clearwing chicks the hen would have to carry the gene. The cinnamon & ino genes that make up lacewing are sex-linked so to get them the **** would have to be split.

Green series birds can carry yellow face so it is a possibility but unless you get blues you won't be able see yellow face
