I am no good at predicting outcomes Erin as I am just learning the ropes there. Whatever they are turn out to be, I can't wait to see the pictures

The first pair will produce light green opaline cinnamon chicks. If both birds are split for blue you could get some sky blue opaline cinnamons.

Second pair. Why do you think the **** bird is both dominant pied and clearflight pied? They should produce light green pieds & normals. If the **** is split for blue you will get some sky blue & yellow face sky blue. You will only get cinnamon if the male is split for cinnamon

Hi Nev,
In the first cage, the **** isn't split opaline, the hen is opaline, wouldn't that make the **** birds split opaline?? I'm learning about mutations & wanted to find out :)

So, we're definately expecting some light green cinnamons (no surprise there :p), though I was more curious as to what Beau and Lux were going to throw. And I've actually had this conversation as to why I believe Beau is both clear and dom pied before. He has all the clearflight markings. Clear neck, back of the head, clear flight and tail feathers. He just also happens to be a dom pied.
I don't know what these particular birds are split for, so it will be an adventure to find out. It's all rather exciting.
I think my malfunction is that I don't quite understand how the Yellowface passes down?

All the male chicks will be split for opaline

Dominant pieds have a clear spot on the back of the head and clear flight and tail feathers similar to clearflight pieds. Usually a combination of the two types will have a lot more clear areas on the body than individuals of either type

Provided that there is only one type of yellow face involved it works the same as any other dominant mutation
