Will This Plan Help Me Get Greywing Dominant Pied Blue Budgies?

Recommended Posts

I always wanted a Greywing Dominant Pied Blue bird but those are so rare around here...mainly because people don't really breed Greywings much (Spangles are bred 60% of the time)

 

So the birds I want to include in my plan are:

 

Boys:

 

Winter: Full Body Coloured Greywing Violet Cobalt

Sky: Single Factor Dominant Pied Cobalt

Girls:

 

Autumn: Greywing Skyblue

Aria: Double Factor Dominant Pied Opaline Cobalt

At first I wanted to pair up Winter with Autumn to get Greywing babies, but yesterday I thought that the pair would only produce chicks that would look like the parents...and I want variations.

 

So I thought if I take a longer route:

 

Pair 1:

 

Winter X Aria - they'll give me:

 

Normal Single Factor Dominant Pied Cobalts

Normal Single Factor Dominant Pied Violet Cobalts

 

These birds will be Split to Greywing...is that correct?

 

Pair 2:

 

Sky X Autumn - they'll give me:

 

Normal Single Factor Dominant Pied Cobalts

Normal Single Factor Dominant Pied Skyblues

Normal Cobalts

Normal Skyblues

 

These birds will also be split to Greywing, is that correct?

 

Then if I pick a Normal SF Dominant Pied Cobalt chick from Pair 1's clutch, and a Normal Single Factor Dominant Pied chick from Pair 2's clutch and breed them

 

Normal SF Dominant Pied Violet Cobalt/Greywing X Normal SF Dominant Pied Cobalt/Greywing:

 

Then I can get:

 

Normal Single Factor Dominant Pied Cobalts

Normal Double Factor Dominant Pied Cobalts

Normal Single Factor Dominant Pied Violet Cobalts

Normal Double Factor Dominant Pied Violet Cobalts

Greywing Single Factor Dominant Pied Cobalts

Greywing Double Factor Dominant Pied Cobalts

Greywing Single Factor Dominant Pied Violet Cobalts

Greywing Double Factor Dominant Pied Violet Cobalts

Is this the possible outcome?

 

Have I missed out on any other possibilities?

Hi There is the little problem that all your pet birds will or maybe split for other colours/shades etc.

Which may upset your careful plans. But that's part of the fun of breeding budgies. Yours B.J.

But that would mean those genes are recessive, and the common recessive genes need to be present in both the parents...so that could be unlikely, resulting of other mutations...but even if that happens, I won't mind as long as I do get the Dominant Pied Greywing Cobalts :D

Your plan sounds good. Maybe one of the surprise recessive genes will turn out to be greywing. If so, then you might get your goal chick in the first generation. :)
