    @c0keguy
    Opaline is still an uncommon mutation. If you want to get into opalines, this could be a useful bird. Opaline is sex-linked recessive so pairing this male to a plain blue or violet will give you some violet opaline females.
    I don't remember the price of plain violets there, I think it was around $1000 a pair?
    If so then this price seems to be on the expensive side given that it will take 2 years to breed.
    I don't really have a reference price for opalines. It is just my gut feeling.
    Ask around and see if the opaline mutation is in demand.

    Regards

    thanks @saud .. it seems like every one has female opalines .. are males are hard to come by in opalines ? I found another person selling a grey opaline female X grey/opaline male .. what would be the best possible pairing to get opaline males if i purchase that opaline female ??

    Males of all sex-linked mutations (including lutino, albino, pallid) are harder to find than the females.
    To get opaline males, the father should be opaline or split opaline and the hen must be opaline.

    Split Opaline male x Opaline female
    25% opaline males
    25% opaline females
    25% Split opaline males
    25% non-opaline females

    Opaline male x Opaline female
    All opalines 50% males 50% females
