unless your female is het for albino, the offspring of breeding your normal female and albino male will all be het for albino. This means they will look normal, but be carriers for the albinism trait since it is a recessive allele.

Description of recessive genetics(in this case, albinism):
Normal=AA Albino=aa Het(Normal looking, but carry one albinism allele)=Aa.

Normal(AA) x Albino(aa)= 100% Hets(Aa).

Het(Aa) x Albino(aa)= Hets(Aa) and Albino(aa) offspring.

Het(Aa) x Het(Aa)= Normals(AA), possible Hets(Aa)(because you can't be 100% which are normals and which are hets because they look the same visually), and Albinos(aa)

Albino(aa) x Albino(aa)=100% Albinos(aa).


I hope this helps you understand the genetics because recessive traits.
