Ive just had a thought, well i know that itchy is some kind of dominant pied with yellow face type two, but what colour is he

obviously as he is white based he must be a blue, but it is very dark and on close inspection it looks like a grey, but im not sure any help?

No, if he breeds then 50% of his chicks will also carry a grey factor. If he is double factor grey then all his chicks will have a single factor but he is more than likely not double factor.

okay then

Assuming that itchy is a df dominant pied sf grey with yf 2 **** and he is split for nothing
and scratchy is a sf oplaine greywing sf grey and is also split for nothing

i estimate that the offspring would be

6.25% male yellowface Sf dominant pied Df grey factor/ oplaine greywing
12.5% male yellow face Sf dominant pied Sf grey factor/ opaline greywing
6.25% male yellow face sf dominant pied blue/ opaline grewing
6.25% male sf dominant pied Df grey factor/ opaline grey
12.5% male sf dominant pied Sf grey factor/ opaline grey
6.25% male sf dominant pied sf blue/ opaline greywing
6.25% Female yellowface dominant pied df grey factor/ grey wing
12.5% female yellowface dominant pied sf single grey factor/ greywing
6.25% female yellowface dominant pied sf Blue/ greywing
6.25% female dominant pied sf double grey factor/ greywing
12.5% female dominant pied sf double grey factor/ greywing
6.25% female dominant pied sf Blue/ greywing

there are some pics in this thread that pretty much sum up the set up

by the way on a seperate note im still in doubt of his colour because cloe up he does have a blue colour to him, plus i dont know if it means anything but his cheak patches are really violet compared to scratchys

it doesnt show well in the pics but in person he is different than scratchys colour
