No.4 you will have normal greens (some with dark factor as male is cobalt)
and some green pieds (some with dark factor)
if the female is split for blue you will have the same as above but some blue and some green.
the parents will most probably be split for some thing and will be suprises.

No.6 you will have all greys.
unless parents are split for other things. then you will get suprises

those are the only 2 i can help you on as im no expert:p


someone correct me if im wrong..im still learning.

i think their paired up ok
the only pair im ot too sure on is the last ome..the 2 greys.
you have a lot of cinnamon fmales..none of the chicks will show up as cinncmon unless the males have cinnamon in them (split) that goes for opaline too.
but i doo like pair No.1 as you will gat different shades of blues:D

1) Cobalt male-Sky blue cinnamon wing female
If the male is not split for cinnamon:
50% cobalt normal
50% sky blue normal
All males split for cinnamon

If the male is split for cinnamon:
25% cobalt
25% sky blue
25% cobalt cinnamon
25% sky blue cinnamon

2) Green male-Green cinnamon wing female
If the male is not split for cinnamon and they are not both split for blue:
100% green normal

If the male is split for cinnamon:
50% green
50% green cinnamon

3) Grey-Green male-Sky blue opaline female
If the male is not split for opaline or blue:
50% grey green
50% green
All split for blue and males split for opaline

If the male is split for opaline:
25% grey green
25% opaline grey green
25% green
25% opaline green

If the male is split for opaline & blue:
12.5% grey green
12.5% opaline grey green
12.5% green
12.5% opaline green
12.5% grey
12.5% opaline grey
12.5% blue
12.5% opaline blue
The shades of blue or green would depend on the dark factor of the grey green ****

4) Cobalt male-Dom. pied yellow female
If the dominant pied is double factor and not split for blue:
100% single factor dominant pied green

If the dominant pied is double factor and is split for blue:
50% single factor dominant pied green
50% single factor dominant pied blue

If the dominant pied is single factor and not split for blue:
50% single factor dominant pied green
50% green normal

If the dominant pied is single factor and is split for blue:
25% green
25% blue
25% single factor dominant pied green
25% single factor dominant pied green

The shades of green and blue would depend on the dark factor of the pied but there would be at least 2 shades of each

5) Recessive sky blue pied male-Cobalt cinnamon wing female
If the male is not split for cinnamon and the female is not split for recessive pied:
50% cobalt
50% sky blue
All split for recessive pied and the males split for cinnamon

If the male is NOT split for cinnamon and the female IS split for recessive pied:
25% cobalt
25% recessive pied cobalt
25% sky blue
25% recessive pied sky blue

If the male is IS split for cinnamon and the female IS split for recessive pied:
12.5% cobalt
12.5% recessive pied cobalt
12.5% sky blue
12.5% recessive pied sky blue
12.5% cinnamon cobalt
12.5% cinnamon recessive pied cobalt
12.5% cinnamon sky blue
12.5% cinnamon recessive pied sky blue

6) Grey male-Grey female!
If they are both single factor grey:
50% single factor grey
25% double factor grey
25% blue

If one is single factor grey and the other is double factor grey:
50% single factor grey
50% double factor grey

If they are both double factor grey:
100% double factor grey

With any of these pairs other sex-linked or recessive mutations could appear and could effect up to 25% of the chicks
