If i understand this right you will get 50%white /50% silver pied

My question is will the whites be split to silver pied & white eye?

Bigdog, White with a silverpied will get you mostly white chicks.but some of the white chicks will carry the silver pied gene but you won't know what birds this is if your white bird is from a straight blue line.
If he is already from silverpied birds the more carriers you would have but still you would not know the ones carring the silverpied gene and the ones that are not. Rolling Eyes
So for example chance your white bird to straight India blue because that is what he realy is if he is from a straight line of blue birds.
So india blue with silverpied all your chicks are going to be blue.
some with white flights and some with no white at all.
the ones that are showing the white flights are carring the white gene and the ones that are showing nothing are the ones that are carring the pied gene.
So take a white flight bird from this mateing and one that shows nothing and you get pied birds or Silverpied, some white eyed birds because silverpied is white eyed Embarassed
