Smick i like your pair set up hope you get some nice colors from them thanks for sharing. Have you had these pairz set up before? If so what chicks did you get? How long have you been breeding ringnecks's? I am knew to it is but it is so neat how many different colors and mutations you can get :)

Seems as if the father should be a greygreen cock, rather than an olive, otherwise they wouldn't be able to produce a grey offspring. Greygreen and olive look very similar (different coloured tail feathers). Unless the father is olive, and the hen is albino cobalt or mauve, then the chick is actually a mauve / ino, rather than a grey. This seems highly unlikely, though. Your bird most probably is a grey / ino male if the mother is albino, so 50% of his sons and daughters will carry ino. You won't know with the sons, as it is recessive. Best choice would be with a hen carrying ino as well. Turquoise ino (creamino) would be good.
