 Genetics help ( leopard gecko

last year I bought a Blizzard leopard gecko (F) and she had mated with a Albino Male
We had 6 hatchlings ... from this blizzard + albino pair
what would the babys be?
this year we took 2 of the siblings a sister and a brother
one is albino and the other is normal they should be Het Blizzard.?
they had 1 clutch of eggs
we just had one hatch could anyone tell me what these babys are going to be just albino x normal het Blizzard ?

Are you saying that one of the offspring from your first pair (Blizzard x Albino) came out Albino? The only way that can happen is if your Blizzard was Het Albino... A Blizzard x Albino pairing should have only resulted in ALL Normal Double Het Blizzard & Albino babies...

But you said that your pair this year, siblings from last year’s are an Albino and a Normal... That means that your Blizzard has to be het for Albino if you ended up with an Albino sibling... That means that Albino should also be het for Blizzard, and your Normal is Double het for Blizzard and Albino...

With a pairing of an Albino het Blizzard x Normal DH Blizzard & Albino, you should end up with the following percentages...

2/16 Normal het Albino
2/16 Albino
2/16 Blizzard het Albino
4/16 Albino het Blizzard
4/16 Normal DH Blizzard & Albino
2/16 Blazing Blizzard

If I’m wrong on the percentages... just know at least those are the morphs you’ll be getting... Might be a little off... My genetics is a little iffy... lol.

Yep, I know what you mean. Believe me. Even people that have the basics of genetics down can mix things up... lol. Learn how to use a Punnett Square... That’ll make things a little easier.
