Zeus is a recessive pied & he could also be greywing but some recessive pieds have light markings which darken when they are adult.

He looks male so it would not be possible for him to be either opaline or cinnamon because sex-linked mutations are only visible in a male if the mother has them

The chicks in the clutch that are showing opaline will be female

I was looking at him and the bottom section of his wings are clear. While his dads have markings does that make him a recessive dominate pied combo?
I considered that possibility but there is nothing obvious that shows positively that he is a combination pied. He could be but you would need to breed from him to be sure either way. His parents probably would produce some combination pieds as well as normals, dominant pieds & recessive pieds

Hi guys! Zeus is doing very well but he has started to develop iris rings so he must be split for dominate pied or something else entirely. He's ten weeks old now and almost seems lighter in color. If he is just a normal recessive pied baby when will he darken up?
