Hi All,
I'm keeping my hopes low I have a fertile clutch but... if things do work out I'm curious what I might get. They are both pearl-pied. The hen is the grey and male is cinnamon. I am aware my male has 2 different coloured flight feathers. This is an unplanned pregnancy btw. They have decided to get down together and we will see what happens 🤣

Your hen is pearl but I don't think that she's pied. Observe the dark quill in her tail feathers - this is pearl coloration, not pied. A pied feather doesn't have any grey color in it at all.

All babies will be pearl, and they will all get the pied gene from dad. If they also get a pied gene from mom they will be visual pied, otherwise they'll just be split. The girls will be cinnamon, and the boys will be grey split to cinnamon. There could be surprises if the parents have any hidden splits. For example, you can get lutino girls if the male is split to lutino, and you can get whiteface if both parents are split to whiteface.
