Hi Rritoch, if all 3 off your green ringnecks are females then from the parents genetics they will be normal green not split to anything, that is if the parents were not carrying any splits. In this case I would say that the father was green and the mother was lutino, as per the calculation below, to get green female chicks

1.0 green
x 0.1 ino
% from all 1.0
100.0% 1.0 green /ino
% from all 0.1
100.0% 0.1 green

If it were the other way around with the father being lutino and the mother being green, then as you will see from the calculation below, the hens will all be lutino

  1.0 ino
x 0.1 green
% from all 1.0
100.0% 1.0 green /ino
% from all 0.1
100.0% 0.1 ino

As to mating a blue male to one of your green hens, you will get the following results, that is of course not taking into account any splits which they may be holding

1.0 blue
x 0.1 green
% from all 1.0
100.0% 1.0 green /blue
% from all 0.1
100.0% 0.1 green /blue

So once again here you will get all visual green babies, but this time they will all be split to blue, doesn't matter if they are male or female.

Thanks

Yes they will be green only unless they are carrying any recessive genes from previous generations.

You don't need to find a green/blue male to breed greens and blues, you can keep one of the female green/blue chicks and mate it back to the father and as you will see from the calculation below, you will get green and blue babies in both males and females

1.0 blue
x 0.1 green /blue
% from all 1.0
50.0% 1.0 blue
50.0% 1.0 green /blue
% from all 0.1
50.0% 0.1 blue
50.0% 0.1 green /blue

If you don't fancy doing that then you can look for another blue male, or as you suggested another green/blue male and you will breed greens and blues in both males and females

Green ringnecks normally have tail feathers which are yellow underneath

Another option for you would be to look for an male albino(white) ringneck and mate it to one of your green hens to achieve the following results

1.0 blue ino
x 0.1 green
% from all 1.0
100.0% 1.0 green /blue ino
% from all 0.1
100.0% 0.1 ino /blue

Here you will get green males which will be split for blue ino and you willl get lutino females split for blue. Then take one of the lutino/blues female chicks and when mature mate it back to the albino father and this would be the results

  1.0 blue ino
x 0.1 ino /blue
% from all 1.0
50.0% 1.0 blue ino
50.0% 1.0 ino /blue
% from all 0.1
50.0% 0.1 blue ino
50.0% 0.1 ino /blue

As you can see you will breed albino and lutino babies in both male and female

may i suggest with one of the green/blue hens pair this to a blue pallid cock which aren't that much different in price from a normal blue and are easy to get and beautifull.
This pairing then will produce 50% green pallid hens,and 50% blue pallid hens.
Cocks will be 50% blue/pallid and50% green/blue/pallid .
So from this pairing you gain the benifit of being able to nest sex the young,saving the cost of dna sexing or the wait for visual sexing at maturity.

HI there,

Just to add my little comment, before you go and buy another bird, be sure one of yours isnt a male?
How old are they, etc etc, then you should be able to tell.

:-) I had a green bird i thought was female until he got his ring after 2 years, I was rather surprised.
