Default Helpful guide?

I was wondering if anyone had a useful website that had baby chick identifying guides?
I've read a few different things and wanted to try and identify my chicks as they grow.
I read that when they get there first feathers they are either grey or white, grey meaning normal and White meaning a different mutation
Anyway, I'm now confused and like to do a little more research :-)

As my first chick has white feathers and I was expecting normal greens..
I need a bit more education on the topic!! Ha

The best way to tell what the chicks are going to be before they get all their feathers is by their parent's mutations. Of course the parents can be hiding mutations too and then you could get a surprise. That oldest chick there looks to be yellow based and from the dark skin on the wings probably a normal type, but if the parents are opaline it could be that too.

Ah I was just confused as one of my budgies is getting grey fluffies and this chick has white, didn't know if I might be getting Something I hadn't expected ... I have a normal green male and a Lutino hen ... And as I had no albinos I gathered they were all greens

With that paring other than normal green you can expect Opaline female, Cinnamon female and Dominant Pied male or female as surprise.
