I thought recessive meant clear wings. Any ideas?
It says that if the eyes are very light - lighter than a normal budgies it is a double factor but if the eyes are normal it is a recessive piedThat's what I thought cuz his grey patches are very skippish just like Spade's blue patches. Cheeko doesn't look recessive to me lol.
Amberlea, what you say IS true! That much I know. I also am unsure how to tell if it is two different pieds. So we're in the same boat. Dad looks like he has no iris ring, which means he is recessive pied. To get recessive pied, I believe 2 parents have to have it so maybe mom is split for it? I think I would guess recessive pied.OMG! Mutations are confusing! Right I am staying out of this now, I have no clue
Lol. Ok let's see if I can remember. I think dad must be split for opaline since it's sex linked. Albino is sex linked as well. So he would be split for that as well. And all of those chicks would be females.Not sure if this confuses more in to the mix but their previous clutch included 2 x albinos, a sky blue opaline and a grey dilute and grey pied (different coloured cheek patches)
