First off my youngest babies are starting to wean and I would like to know their mutations so I could get it on their birth certificates. If someone could tell me what they are, I'm pretty good with gender.

Baby 1


Baby 2


Baby 3


Baby 4


Baby 5


My next question is I have a male spangled pictured below, I have several females below and I would really like to breed for more spangles since I find them so stunningly beautiful.

Remy


Females
Laqueesha

Flash

Butter

Princess

Faith


Last question is I have my grey male and I would like to breed for more greys but I'm not sure which females would do best. The females are above.

Dewey


Thanks so much. I tried researching I just want what I believe confirmed my people with more knowledge. Thanks so much

i would put your grey spangle with laqueesha or butter. any of your hens would give some spangles, but i really like yf spangle pieds.

the same hens would be the best bet for more greys, though any of your blue hens would produce some greys and the green might if she is split for blue...

Right now Dewey is paired with butter and I was going to breed Remy with Laqueesha so that looks good. Flash is an outcome of a green pied and an albino so I don't think she is split for blue. My only blue hen is finishing her clutch right now so I don't want to breed her again.

flash will be split for blue, an albino is a blue ino so one of her parents was from the blue series.

also, when i said any of your blue hens i meant any of your blue series hens... ie blues, or greys or whites... sorry for not being clearer.

green series = any greens, grey greens or yellows.
blue series = any blues, greys or whites.

Oh ok thanks. So I could even breed Princess or Faith with Dewey and get more greys. Would any green series give me more greys? I heard the cobalt blues will darken the grey and the skyblue will lighten it. What will the green series do? Thanks so much by the way

gray can be harder to see on some greens, and f your grey is only single factor gray (as in one gray gene) only 25% of the chicks will be true blue greys if paired with flash

yes princess or faith could give you half greys.

with flash, you would only get 25% greys, the rest would be greygreens, blues and greens.

greys come in three shades, just like blues and greens. cobalts can pass on a dark factor gene and produce a medium or dark shade of grey which skyblue can not. the same occurs with the different shades of green.
