I'm curious about the mutation that causes the pattern on Lois's back. Her father is a double factor spangle (split for opaline), and her mother is a normal cobalt. I believe Lois is a dominant pied spangle, but is there something additional that creates that scale-like pattern? Or is it just the spangle effect? Oh....and what about her wings being all yellow? Thanks for your input.

yellow faced type 2 dominant pied spangle blue.
The spangle is making the 'scale' effect.
and her wings being yellow is the dominant pied, it makes the wings all clear in that area (and also the yf2):)

beautiful bird!

I think you'll find the father is a YELLOW double factor spangle yes? The double factor spangle is also marking dominant pied as evidenced by the chick. He may be single dark factor also, but perhaps more likely to be no dark factor.

The chick is a single factor spangle dominant pied light green hen.

You are correct that the father is yellow, and I assumed that he is the one who contributed the dominant pied gene. The base of the tail does look kind of teal in the photo, but it really is green.

Thanks for all the feedback!
