I have a male baby from earlier this year (Monty), who was a yellowface grey, but is now after his first molt, grey-green (more green)
this was him before the molt (I don't have a picture afterwards) but will he go back to grey or stay grey/green?

His dad is Paulie


And his Mum was Stitch (R.I.P)


Also if I bred him with Candy, (next year when they are mature) what mutation/colour babies will I get?

This is when candy was younger, she still looks the same, just has a definately brown cere now.
Candys parents are Violet ( a violet hen) and Napeoleon ( a yellow RP male)

Monty looks like a normal, grey, yellow face. The yellow face may have made his grey look grey green. But it would be nice to see a photo of him now.

Candy Looks like a blue, violet, recessive pied, yellow face.

If they where bred together you would get...
100% normals
100% blues
Some chicks with will have single factor violet and single factor grey.
100% should also be yellow face
No recessive pied chicks unless Monty is split for recessive pied he may be because his mother was a recessive pied.

Stitch was a dominant pied so unless Monty has inherited recessive pied from an earlier generation mating him to Candy won't produce any recessive pied chicks

Oh, what does dominant pied mean? :-S
There are three separate pied mutations, two are dominant and one is recessive.

If a mutation is dominant generally if it is not visible it is not present (there are exceptions)

If a mutation is recessive and it is not visible it could still be carried in the genes and show up among the chicks

Your Monty doesn't have any visible pied mutations. He hasn't inherited dominant pied from his mother because if he had it would be visible
