The hen could have either zero or 1 dark factor. If she has zero dark factor the blues & violets will be about half sky blues & half cobalts. If she has one dark factor the blues & violets will be about half cobalt, a quarter sky blue & a quarter mauve

If your birds are split for any mutations you don't know about you could get some surprises

That is very helpful, thank you. So the second pairing would produce no yellow faces? I'm not sure how that gene works yet.

yf is a dominant gene, so if the parents do not show it visibly then they do not have the gene... and can't produce any yf chicks

Oh ok. So just for future reference how can I produce yellow faces. Just need one parent with a yellow face and two would increase my chances?
