Hi everyone! :wave:
As many of you know, I recently bred Lillie (Violet Grey Spangle) and Tibbles (Light Green Normal). I knew Tibbles was split for blue but that's all. I have been told their oldest baby (26 days) is a Violet Opaline Spangle. Does this make them both split for Opaline or do I have this all wrong? Or is he/she too young to tell yet? Here is the first baby right now:




Here he/she is a little younger (baby on right):


Thanks in advance! :)

Opaline is a sex links gene :) only males can be split for sex linked genes. To get a visual sex linked gene you need at least the male to have a split form of it, so the gene came from Tibbles and he is split for opaline. since Lillie is not an opaline the chick is a female :)

I think the father is split for spangle and opaline. So the baby is female for sure and pretty at that. congrats!

Spangle is not a sex-linked gene - it is a dominant gene
