I think you can expect 50% of both the colour mix. may be some one experienced can give more light on mutation.. but best of luck. How many eggs you have in the nest?

Your male looks like a light green opaline and your female is an albino . Since albino masks other mutations , it would be difficult to accurately predict what she could pass on . Both parents could also have hidden splits . But if you exclude the unknown factors ..... all male chicks will be light green split to opaline and albino while females will all be opaline light greens split to blue . If you do breed them , don't be surprised if some other mutations pop up in the babies

Thank you Vinay.. I am also hoping to get some hidden surprises.
Don`t have any egg yet.... They mated once in the beginning when i paired them , then they stopped and started molting, now they almost finished molting and again started showing interest in breeding.

It's true, it's hard to make a relatively accurate Punnett square without knowing what other mutations are hidden in there, but just by sight, if the male is split for blue, the offspring would be:
25% lime green male split for opaline, ino, and blue
25% lime green opaline female split for blue
25% blue male split for opaline and ino
25% blue opaline female

If the male isn't split for blue, the offspring would be:
50% lime green male split for opaline, ino and blue
50% lime green opaline female split for blue

The percents are all just theoretical, it just shows that you have an equal chance of getting each mutation combination.

I hope I helped! Good luck!

Thank you Sophie, it is a great help. Can you tell me how can i learn about breeding outcomes, like Punnett square etc..

Well I learned in a class about genetics, but I'm sure there are plenty of websites that can teach you. It's pretty simple once you really get into it. You just need to know the mutations, how they're inherited (ex. dominant, recessive, co-dominant, semi-dominant, incomplete dominant, X-linked, etc), what the phenotypes will be, and choose symbols to represent the mutations. Usually the first letter of the recessive trait is what you use. The dominant trait gets an upper case letter while the recessive gets a lower case letter, like with colour for example, B represents green (dominant), while b represents blue (recessive).
You can make Punnett squares or tree diagrams. Punnett squares are the simplest and best to use when examining 1 or 2 genes, but they can get tedious when examining many genes. Genes are what you are measuring (like height or body colour) and alleles are the specific options (like tall/short or green/blue). Here's a site that explains all the mutations and their method(s) of inheritance. It also has some example Punnett squares. https://www.****************/colors.html
I hope I helped! Good luck!

Oh sorry! The website is called budgie place. There's a 'colours and mutations' section you can go to. For some reason whenever I type in the website name with "www" at the front and ".com" at the end, it doesn't work... You can find it by just typing in "budgie place", it's the first thing that comes up.
