I'm no expert, but since Miki is from the green series (which is the most dominant of all series), you will probbaly end up with chicks that are all Miki's colour unless she is split for a recssive pied which is sometimes obvious on the back of their head as plain feathers or sometimes just hidden.

Taco looks like a yellow face Type II sky blue to me but I might be confused. Is Taco split to pied?

Zeena is right. Unless Miki is splt for recessive pied, blue or one of the sex-linked mutations then all the chicks will be light green. It is quite rare to find a budgie that is not split for something so you might get some variety

My bad... since Miki was in the signature, I assumed that Taco was the one in the avatar.

That would make sense! A very pretty bird at that, too!
