I have 2 questions if anyone can help it is greatly appreciated.

If I bred my albino with my grey spangled would they all be spangled? here are pictures.



And then If I bred these 2 what colors would I likely get? And how does the cinnamon gene work? Is it like albino to where the male is split? Or can she have cinnamon?



thanks so much!

First pair would be a mix of grey and blues, and of those you could get any combination of yellowface and/or spangle. The father is only single factor so every chick has a 50% chance to get that single gene from him.

Its also largely unknown what the albino hen is masking, she could also be spangle, or pied or any number of things so its a mixed bag with babies. All your males will be split for albino from this pair tho.

Second pair, again you will have a mix of blues and greys (50:50 chance), and since both parents are dominant pied you should get 25:50:25 of normal:single factor dom pied:double factor dom pied (1 normal, 2 SF, 1 DF in every 4 chicks are the odds). If the hen is cinnamon, all the cocks from this pair will be split cinnamon but there will be no visual cinnamons unless the dad is cinnamon or split for it.

The albino has had a clutch before with a dominant pied sf opaline and they just produced normal greens and opalines. I am breeding her son now who is a normal green and so far they have 5 out of 7 chicks, one being albino. I am going to pair them up and see how they do. Both females are in condition along with males. The albino and blue one has both had 1 clutch the other two hasn't. Thanks so much for explaining them to me.

If she is not split for blue you will get 50% green and 50% lutinos. If she is split for blue you will get 25% green, 25% blue, 25% lutino, 25% albino.

The breeder I would be getting a lutino from said that the dad is lutino and the mom is blue. He said he could only get girls.
