I would like to breed my birds Charlie and Lime. Can someone help me determine what their chicks will look like? I have a short pedigree for Lime but I don't know much about Charlie. Here are a couple photos to help you with the color mutations. I will take a guess on each birds color mutation.

Charlie: Normal sky blue YFT2 full color grey wing.

Lime: Normal olive green full color grey wing.
Lime's father was a bright yellow clear wing with a green patch on his belly
Lime's mother was normal cobalt full color grey wing
I think Lime is carrying blue from her mother. She has some blue feathers near her tail.

Well I'm going to take a guess on the chicks colors.

100% grey wing
100% yellow face
most chicks will be normal green
Some could be cobalt or mauve if Lime is carrying blue
Tell me if I'm right or wrong

Charlie is a YF2 normal Cobalt (not greywing at all).
Lime is a normal Olive Greywing.

from what I can tell:

Lime's Father is a Light Green Recessive Pied
Lime's Mother is a Cobalt Greywing

Lime would be split for blue and a single dark factor (maybe). She got the Greywing from her mother. The blue in her tail feathers is just normal with the green coloring and she didn't get it from her mother, despite her carrying her mother's blue gene.


I'm not completely sure on any of these and I don't have a clue as to what the chicks would look like. I'm sure a more experience person will come along soon.

Charlie doesn't look greywing to me but some greywings are darker than others
Lime will be split for blue if her mother was blue

If Charlie is a greywing all the chicks will be greywing
About half will be green series and half blue (all in the darker shades)
Expect 50% yellow face unless Charlie's yellow face is double factor
