Can you tell me the out comes of these birds?:dunno:

male : female

colbalt dominant pied : normal green

colbalt dominant pied : dilute normal green

colbalt dominant pied : green dominant spangle with slate factor

colbalt dominant pied : rainbow green

And please dont just go %50 spangle and %50 normals
please tell me the colorations too:giggle:

extra question:what pair:love2: ( not from above ) do you think will make beautiful chicks?:baby:

Can you tell me the out comes of these birds?:dunno:

male : female

colbalt dominant pied : normal green
If the hen is not split for blue then:
12.5% light green, 12.5% dominant pied light green, 25% green, 25% dominant pied green, 12.5% olive green, 12.5% dominant pied olive green

If the hen is split blue then

6.25% light green, 6.25% dominant pied light green, 12.5% green, 12.5% dominant pied green, 6.25% olive green, 6.25% dominant pied olive green

6.25% sky blue, 6.25% dominant sky blue, 12.5% cobalt, 12.5% dominant pied cobalt, 6.25% mauve, 6.25% dominant pied mauve

colbalt dominant pied : dilute normal green
All chicks will be split dilute.

If the hen is not split for blue then:

12.5% light green, 12.5% dominant pied light green, 25% green, 25% dominant pied light green, 12.5% olive green, 12.5% dominant pied olive green

If the hen is split blue then:

6.25% light green, 6.25% dominant pied light green, 12.5% green, 12.5% dominant pied light green, 6.25% olive green, 6.25% dominant pied olive green

6.25% sky blue, 6.25% dominant sky blue, 12.5% cobalt, 12.5% dominant pied cobalt, 6.25% mauve, 6.25% dominant pied mauve

colbalt dominant pied : green dominant spangle with slate factor
Spangle is dominant, so you dont need to call it dominant spangle. Unless you mean dominant pied AND spangle. Also, slate is a VERY rare colour adding factor so im not sure you are correct in stating your bird is slate. Perhaps violet green?

colbalt dominant pied : rainbow green
Not sure what you mean by a rainbow green? Rainbows are Yellowface opaline clearwing blues. What do you mean?

And please dont just go %50 spangle and %50 normals
please tell me the colorations too:giggle:

extra question:what pair:love2: ( not from above ) do you think will make beautiful chicks?:baby:
Most of the above pairs will give you the same outcome for the most part, either all green normals and dominant pieds, or a mixture of green and blue normals and dominant pieds. Not a lot of variation no matter which way you spin it.

If you are referring to 'general' breeding and making pretty chicks, thats really down to everyones preferences. Im a big fan of yellowface type 1 violets and violet spangles, violet clearwings, violet violet violet :p Also Yellowface type two sky blue opalines are gorgeous.
Hope this helps somewhat. Pictures of your birds always help, as we can ascertain the correct mutation and then advise on breeding outcomes.

Edit: Slight typo on my mutation calcs. Listed light green twice instead of normal green.

Male colbalt dominant pied : female normal green
It depends what you mean by normal green. A normal green, like the wild budgies is light green. Assuming you mean light green and she is not split for blue, you'd get:
25% normal light green
25% dominant pied light green
25% normal dark green
25% dominant pied dark green
If the hen is split for blue you'd get:
12.5% light green
12.5% dark green
12.5% dominant pied light green
12.5% dominant pied dark green
12.5% sky blue
12.5% cobalt
12.5% dominant pied sky blue
12.5% dominant pied cobalt
If your green is a dark green and split for blue, you'd get:
6.25% light green
12.5% dark green
6.25% olive green
6.25% dominant pied light green
12.5% dominant pied dark green
6.25% dominant pied olive green
6.25% sky blue
12.5% cobalt
6.25% mauve
6.25% dominant pied sky blue
12.5% dominant pied cobalt
6.25% dominant pied mauve

colbalt dominant pied : dilute normal green
Assuming you mean light green the result should be the same as the pair above. You won't get any dilutes unless the **** bird is split for dilute but all the chicks will be split for dilute

colbalt dominant pied : green dominant spangle with slate factor
Slate is very rare and not easily identified, could it be grey? Slate is a sex-linked mutation so if it is slate it won't appear in the chicks unless the **** bird is split for slate. Assuming the green is light green and not split for blue you should get:
12.5% dominant pied light green
12.5% dominant pied dark green
12.5% spangle light green
12.5% spangle dark green
12.5% normal light green
12.5% normal dark green
12.5% dominant pied spangle light green
12.5% dominant pied spangle dark green
If she is split for blue you'd get:
6.25% dominant pied light green
6.25% dominant pied dark green
6.25% spangle light green
6.25% spangle dark green
6.25% normal light green
6.25% normal dark green
6.25% dominant pied spangle light green
6.25% dominant pied spangle dark green
6.25% dominant pied sky blue
6.25% dominant pied cobalt
6.25% spangle sky blue
6.25% spangle cobalt
6.25% normal sky blue
6.25% normal cobalt
6.25% dominant pied spangle sky blue
6.25% dominant pied spangle cobalt

colbalt dominant pied : rainbow green
Can't help much with this pair because it depends what mutations are included in what you've called "rainbow" but half the chicks would be dominant pied of some sort

extra question:what pair:love2: ( not from above ) do you think will make beautiful chicks?:baby: Every pair makes beautiful chicks
