Wow. Although I would get some right, there are some really great genetics folks on here so I will leave it to them. I just wanted to say that your birds are stunning and the babies turned out just beautiful :)

Thanks for the mutations Nev. I'm still too new to all of this so I can't say anything about mutations. :p

Your babies are absolutely beautiful! What a colourful flock! :)

Chick 1 - Dominant pied opaline spangle SF violet
Chick 2 - Yellowface type 2 dominant pied SF violet
Chick 4 - Dominant pied opaline spangle SF violet
Chick 3 - Must be a DF spangle since only dad is dominant pied, so dad must be a Yellow face type 2 spangle dominant pied split for opaline.

Yes she had her tail before breeding but had lost it by the time the babies had grown...lol

I think I got thrown in at the deep end as a first experiance at breeding lol but i do love them all and will be better prepared if this happens again ...lol

Once again thanks so much to you all for you data on the mutations and for all the nice comments for my birds :)
