    Also the yellow one is a roller. The brown one ( it seriously is BROWN, no red ) is a homer. Will the offspring still have a slight roll?

    The Red Looks More Like Ash Red To Me Dark Beak Gray Tail Wing Flights Have White How Old Is This Bird ? If Ash Red Could Produce Ash Red Creams Silver And Blue Just Depends On What The Cock Bird Is And What He Carries

    The brown looking one just left the nest about 3 weeks ago. The yellow roller is pure yellow.

    Which one is male and female? The first one could be either dirty ash-red t-pattern( red velvet for short) or an ash-red mimic. But I'm going with red velvet. The other is an ash-yellow check.

    Depending on which one is which, you'll get different results.

    The cock is the yellow roller.

    Alright. This is a sex-linked mating. All dilute kids will be hens, all normal kids will be cocks (who carry dilute). All the babies should be either ash-red or ash-yellow unless the cockbird carries blue.

    The cock bird doesn't carry blue.

    Then all hens will be ash-yellow, all cocks will be ash-red. Pattern depends on what each bird carries. If the hen is pure t-pattern, you'll get all t-pattern kids. If she's split for check, you'll get half and half. If she and the cock are both split for bar, then you'll get checks, bars, and t-patterns.
