What should the offspring look like?

Post by jmarley3 »

What can I expect the offspring to be with these birds paired together? The male is supposed to be a reduced dominant opal and the female a black.

Assuming the parent's genotypes are correct:
Half will be dominant opal
All daughters will be reduced
50 or 100% will be spread
If any aren't spread they'll likely show bar or check pattern.
