Predictions!
 
Hey guys!

I'm just wondering what the possible outcomes are for my first breeding pair.

Hen - Nigella - Light green dominant pied, cinnamon.
She's the bird in the middle of this image.

Cock - Benny - Recessive pied, cobalt (I think). He has no black markings what so ever, so I think there might be another mutation on top. Here's a couple of pictures of him, newest first.

I's still learning my genetics, but as far as I know you should get:

50% Dominant Pied
50% Normal
50% split Recessive Pied

And if the hen is not split for blue:

50% Dark Green
50% Light Green

I hope this helps :)

Ahh, that's interesting!! So I won't get any blue? Hmm!

Benny looks like a cobalt (possibly violet also) greywing opaline recessive pied to me :)

Assuming neither is split for anything, in addition to what Alexis mentioned above:
All of the chicks will be split for greywing (and all will be split for recessive pied).
The male chicks will be split for opaline and cinnamon.
The female chicks will be opaline.
If Benny is carrying violet also, some of the chicks will be violet.

Do you know anything about Nigellas parents or siblings? Do you have any pics of her as a chick before her first molt by chance? :)

Wow, I knew Benny was pretty. Now I know why :D

I'm not actually sure about Nigella's parentage, but I could probably email my breeder and find out!! I got her at the end of her first moult. I'll definitely try to ask about her parents and siblings, though and come back :)
