Question What will the babies look like?

Grace just laid an egg yesterday. I would like to know what the babies will look like. Jazz's Mom was light olive with a yellow face and gray wings. Jazz's Dad was almost all bright yellow clear wings lighter yellow on his fight feathers and tail with a small patch of green on his belly
Here are some pics of Jazz and Grace. Grace has a bright yellow spot on the back of her head. If that helps.

And here is Jazz and his siblings (not the white one)

Jazz is a dark green normal and Grace is a grey green dominant pied. From your description of Jazz's parents and the pictures of his siblings he is probably split for greywing or clearwing and recessive pied. One of his siblings looks cinnamon so he could also be split for cinnamon. Except for the cinnamon the other mutations are recessive so Grace would have to have a gene for them as well before they would show up in the chicks. If Jazz is split for cinnamon you could get some cinnamon female chicks

The chicks should include:
Green dominant pieds
Grey green dominant pied
Green normals
Grey green normals

To get any blue or grey among the chicks both parents would need to be split for blue. The birds could also be carrying genes for other mutations and produce some surprises
