We think she is either a double factor spangle masking recessive pied, a lutino and the red eyes aren't visible in pic or a dark eyed clear.

Heres the link!

What do you think she is?

Thanks for your help!
I can not see any iris rings and the eyes appear to be black so I would say Dark Eyed Clear. However pictures can distort the colour etc.

What would be the breeding outcome if we breed her with out recessive pied male if she is indeed a dark eyed clear?

Heres a pic of him!

Assuming no splits you would get 50% dark eyed clear and 50% recessive pied, all would be green series unless the hen is split for blue then you would get a mix of green and blues.

I would guess a DEC too :) breeding her would be the only way to know for sure though without information on her background, she does look to have a band so you might be able to track her breeder :) Let us know what you decide to do! :)

Breeding results are the only way to be sure of your bird's mutation. Double factor spangle masking recessive pied is just as likely as a dark eyed clear
Thanks everybody for your help! If we bred a dark eyed clear with a dominant pied split recessive pied would we get any dark eyed clears?
A dark eyed clear mated to a dominant pied split split recessive pied would produce about 12.5% each of:
dominant pied
recessive pied
clearflight pied
darkeyed clear
dominant pied recessive pied combinations
dominant pied clearflight pied combinations
darkeyed clear dominant pied combinations
normal
It probably would be difficult to tell some of the combinations apart

Thanks for your help!! We decided not to get her since she's a bit older then we were looking for!
