1. Dark-eyed clear (DEC) is a combination of clearflight and recessive pied of which the former gene is a dominant one while the latter one is a recessive gene. When DEC is mated to a non-pied budgie, the dominant clearflight gene will act producing as expected, clearflight pieds. Assuming the parents have NO hidden gene, you would expect the offsprings are all green coloured budgies due to green is dominant over blue and 100% split for recessive pied. 50% clearflight pieds and 50% normals. Male chicks will be all split for opaline and cinnamon.One of my couples is; a dark eyed clear(yellow) boy and a opaline cinnamone light blue girl.
And a double-factor spangle(yellow)boy and a opaline cinnamone light blue girl.
What colour will be their babies?
Thanks for your help...
Yes, it does make a lot of differences. To get back DEC in the offsprings for the parents mentioned above, there must be the presence of a recessive pied gene. The mother has been proven by your past breeding that she is split for recessive pied. However, the male DEC offsprings already has a recessive gene and as such, can't be split for recessive pied not possible.Ok. Thanks for your answer. I have a question.
My male budgies father is dark eyed clear yellow,mother is DF spangle yellow.
Is that make any difference?
