    Okay, I have a (IB) Pied male and a IB female (so far I can tell, Pure IB).
    I would like to know the percentage of what the offspring can be, and what colours they can produce.

    All would be blue split pied. No variation in color if both are blue.

    *face palm* lol

    A bird that is split for something looks like a normal bird. All the chicks will look like normal IB's ,and be heterozygous for the pied gene.

    Sorry super new to this split stuff. Ok so blob your saying that the offspring can go either IB colour or pied right?

    Nope ,they will all be normal looking.

    They will all be carrying a gene for pied.

    I'll make a picture of it tomarrow [​IMG]

    What Blob is saying is all the peachicks that your pair produce will look like regular IB. When those peachicks get old enough to breed, depending on what they are bred to, they could have pied peachicks, because they will carry the "gene" for pied in their genetics.

    But if your normal looking hen is split to pied, then you could get some pied chicks.......
