I have a beautiful grey male split dom. pied and I have no clue what color female to pair him up with!

Any suggestions?

The page lists all my budgies (you'll have to scroll down a little)
http://friendlywings.weebly.com/our-budgies.html

It includes:
  • Lutino English
  • Green Cinnamon English
  • Green Cinnamon American
  • DF Violet, cobalt blue, opaline, pied
  • Cobalt blue, mixed pied, yellow face type 2

Or you can just throw out colors you think would make a great match. It'll be a little while before I can set him up for breeding so I have time to look for another female :)

Thanks!

Matches

I am no expert with breeding matches but perhaps the cobalt blue, mixed pied, yellow face type 2...

BTW your Cobalt blue, greywing, dom. pied, yellow face type 2 is absolutely beautiful.

I know nothing at all about this but I would guess Cobalt blue, mixed pied, yellow face type 2 or DF Violet, cobalt blue, opaline, pied

Your grey male can't be split for dominant pied because dominant mutations can't be carried in a split form.

Choosing a mate will depend on what chicks you want. If he is paired with a lutino or a green series bird you will get some greens and some grey greens. If he is paired to a to a blue series bird you can expect blues and greys.

Thanks! He's got the cutest toes also! His feet are blue except for the tips of all his toes, which are pink :)

Thanks! I was leaning towards the violet one.

Well, he has the white patch on the back of his head. I was under the impression that meant he was split for pied, but I could definitely be wrong.

It probably means that he is split for recessive pied - not dominant pied
