and a
Sky blue opaline

Thanks :)

Well, first of all, what one is the male and what one is the female?

On the double factor spangle, what colour is it? We need this information. :)

This is my guess. They would all be single factor spangles. The females would all be opaline. If the hen is split for blue, you will have green and blue chicks. Otherwise, they will all be green. The double spangle may mask all kinds of other secrets that may be revealed in the chicks. Now, let's wait for the experts. By the way....spangle/opaline is a very nice combination.

Ok this is better. :)

100% Green
Males will be 100% normal split with opaline
Females will be 100% opaline
100% double factor spangle

These are my guesses.

I have moved this to Budgie Mutations and Genetics. :)

Yellow double factor spangle female to a sky blue opaline male
If the hen is not split for blue:
All the male chicks will be green spangles
All the female chicks will be green opaline spangles

If she is split for blue:
Green spangle males
Blue spangle males
Green opaline spangle females
Blue opaline spangle females
The shades of blue and green will depend on the dark factor of the female but there won't be any olive or mauve

If any other mutations appear they will combine with these (not replace them)
