Post: Genetics question: pied male x CFW female

    My male minimal pied (white spot under chin, several wing
    feathers and a few small spots on his head) and female CFW
    zebras have two babies. The youngsters fledged about ten
    days ago. Their plumage appears to be gray. Here is my
    question: by all calculations, both of these recessive
    birds should have produced either CFW (from the mother) or
    pied (from the father)--will the babies' plumage change
    when they molt? Has anyone here bred pieds? Is it possible
    for my male to be pied but also carry the Gray gene? (I
    didn't think so, but I wanted to check & be sure.) Any help
    with this matter is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance,
    Dainelle Kinsel
