But since I am trying to understand,, lets assume the hen is sf violet and the cock sf grey. will that give me 25% violet, 25% grey, 25% green and 25% blue, or am I totally off course? And of those colors, 50% spangle and 50% pied, or will there be some normal in there also?
you will not get any greens, as neither parent is green.
if both parents are sf, you will get all blue series. some with grey added, some with violet added, some with both grey and violet added (can look mauveish) and some with neither grey or violet.
for the varieties, you could get normals, spangles, dom pied and dom pied spangles.
