JJ and CC have produced eggs and I was wondering what colour the baby will turn up you can see a picture of CC and JJ in my signature :fear

All your babies will be green unless JJ is split to blue (you need 2 blue genes 1 from each bird to have blue babies)

50% dominant pieds, 50% normals assuming CC is a normal with no dominant pied spot on the back of the head :fear.

JJ and CC have produced JC

 

I don't know if JJ is a split

If JJ and CC produced JC then JJ IS split to blue. :)

So will I have all blue babies or what colours will I have?

 

I was also thinking of getting JC a male to mate with because he is ready to breed and If I wanted a different colours either than blue what colour should the male be

 

 

 

CC has a small white spot on the back of the head but is very small does this mean she is dominant or it has to be a big white spot for it to be dominant

You will have 50% chance of blues and 50% chance of greens

 

CC is a dominant pied then if she has a spot which means you will have 100% dominant pieds.

 

It also means that dad JJ is split to opaline because JC is a hen so any opalines you get will be hens.

 

Blue is recessive so if you pair her up with any green bird you will get greens. Lutino (all yellow) and Albino (all white) are sex linked and the male would need to be split to that to get these babies and they would be females.

you won't get 100% Dom pieds even though they both are. But there is a chance there may Double factor Dominant pieds. (unless she is a recessive split instead like mine)

I have paired 2 Dom pieds with no pieds before so it is luck of the draw.

Chance of: DF dom pieds , Dom pieds, opalines and normals or a mix in shades of blue and green.

I worked out the numbers for you :) (these are percentages and could be completely different to the end ratios)

 

BOYS:

12.5% - Blue Normal

12.5% - Green Normal

25% - Blue Dominant Pied

25% - Green Dominant Pied

12.5% - Blue DF Dominant Pied

12.5% - Green DF Dominant Pied

 

GIRLS

6.75% - Blue Normal

6.75% - Blue Opaline

6.75% - Green Normal

6.75% - Green Opaline

12.5% - Blue Dominant Pied

12.5% - Blue Opaline Dominant Pied

12.5% - Green Dominant Pied

12.5% - Green Opaline Dominant Pied

6.75% - Blue DF Dominant Pied

6.75% - Blue Opaline DF Dominant Pied

6.75% - Green DF Dominant Pied

6.75% - Green Opaline DF Dominant Pied

 

These predictions are made on the assumption that CC is a Normal Blue (Cobalt, but I didn't calculate colour shades in this) and JJ is Light Green Dominant Pied split to Blue and Opaline. With all the above colours you could one of two shades, in the blue series you can get Cobalts (like CC) and Skyblues. And in the green series you could get Light Greens (like JJ) and Dark Greens.

 

No guarantee that these numbers are right... I haven't done one of these predictions before :D

Your right pie it was late last night wasn't thinking about the single and double factor and the recessive pied come if both are carrying the gene it is not related to the dominant pied gene. There are always those surprised of recessive genes :)

Just to throw a spanner in the works...guys. A small spot might mean something other than dominant pied remember. The tiny spots can also be a part of spangle inheritance or even recessive. I have had what looked like normals with a tiny spot and that was from the spangle to recessive parents. Way back to breeding spangles dominant pieds were used. Spangles often have a spot and I have had chicks from spangle parents with a small spot.

Maybe CC isnt dominant pied but born, instead of a spangle parent or showing recessive genetics ? :D

a tiny spot does not always mean dominant pied :)

awww, cute babies!!

 

and umm after reading all that, the last pics clearly shows that the mom is a clearflight pied! so she ain't 'normal... that would change the percentages a bit.

Clearflight pied is still a dom pied, so my calcs should still work :grbud: Just with different types of pied... you could end up with some gorgeous chicks!

I haven't done any calculations myself, since CC was calculated as normal cobalt rather than dom pied cobalt, I was just more thinking along the line that the 'normal' percentage would drop and the dom pied percentage would increase.

Oh! Whoops I thought I had done CC as a pied, must be getting all these breeding budgies mixed up! :(

 

You are right, a much higher percentage of pieds can be expected from this pair. :D

I think the first baby is a blue
