Hi.
I was just wondering if someone would be able to tell me the visual outcomes to these pairs:

WF Cinnamon Grey **** X Rec. Pied Yellow Cinnamon Hen


and

Cinnamon Opaline Grey-Green Hen X WF Cinnamon Grey ****

and

Normal Violet/Sky Blue Hen X Cinnamon Opaline Light Green ****.

Thankyou!

my thoughts:

WF Cinnamon Grey **** X green Rec. Pied Cinnamon Hen

- all chicks normal cinnamon split for recessive pied
- the chicks will be grey green with the possibility of greens, greys or blues if the parents are split for blue

Cinnamon Opaline Grey-Green Hen X WF Cinnamon Grey ****
- all the chicks will be cinnamon
- the cocks will be split for opaline
- the chicks will be grey-greens (with the chance of greys, greens or blues depending on what the adults are split for!)

Normal Violet/Sky Blue Hen X Cinnamon Opaline Light Green ****.
- cinnamon opaline hens
- normal split cinnamon opaline cocks
- colours... if the **** is not split for blue - light greens and light green violets. if he is split for blue - light greens, skyblues, light green violets and skyblue violets..

that is a lot, and probably confusing!

Hang on, the breeder just told me neither of the Cin. Opaline's are YF. And the Pied he is yellow....does that change the outcomes?

Thankyou, it does make sense!

How would I know if the Light Green **** is split blue? Here is his lineage:
Sire- Cinnamon Grey Green
Dam- Opaline Cinnamon Grey

yes it will be split for blue.

grey green is a green bird, the grey gene changes the shade to grey green.
grey is a blue bird, the grey gene changes the shade to grey.

so the parents of this bird are a green bird and a blue bird each with one grey gene present. this means he recieved a green gene from its sire and a blue gene from its dam. as green is dominant it appears green but also has the blue gene present.

Hi.
I was just wondering if someone would be able to tell me the visual outcomes to these pairs:

WF Cinnamon Grey **** X Rec. Pied Yellow Cinnamon Hen
If the hen is not split for blue & the **** is single factor grey and not split for recessive pied:
50% cinnamon grey green
50% cinnamon green

If the hen is split for blue & the **** is single factor grey and not split for recessive pied:
25% cinnamon grey green
25% cinnamon green
25% cinnamon blue
25% cinnamon grey
All chicks will be split for recessive pied and all the green & grey green chicks will be split for blue
Cinnamon Opaline Grey-Green Hen X WF Cinnamon Grey ****
If the hen is not split for blue, the **** is not split for opaline and the grey is single factor in both cases:
50% cinnamon single factor grey green
25% cinnamon double factor grey green
25% cinnamon green

If the hen IS split for blue, the **** is not split for opaline and the grey is single factor in both cases:
25% cinnamon single factor grey green
25% cinnamon single factor grey
12.5% cinnamon double factor grey green
12.5% cinnamon double factor grey
12.5% cinnamon green
12.5% cinnamon blue
All the green or grey green chicks will be split for blue and all the males will be split for opaline
Normal Violet/Sky Blue Hen X Cinnamon Opaline Light Green ****.
If the **** is not split for blue:
50% cinnamon opaline light green females
50% normal light green males split for opaline & cinnamon

If the **** is split for blue:
25% cinnamon opaline light green females
25% normal light green males split for opaline & cinnamon
12.5% cinnamon opaline sky blue females
12.5% cinnamon opaline violet sky blue females
12.5% normal sky blue males split for opaline & cinnamon
12.5% violet sky blue males split for opaline & cinnamon
All the green birds will be split for blue and half of them will be masking violet

If he doesn't have a cinnamon gene he can't produce cinnamon chicks with any hen

If you mate him to a cinnamon hen and produce a yellow face blue spangle male chick. When the chick is old enough to breed it will produce a YF Blue Cinnamon Spangle
