as huskymom said, all the chicks will be green unless the hen is split for blue. and about the pied gene; i think half of the chicks will be pied if the male is dominant pied (single factor) and the other half will be normals. if the pied is a double factor dominant, then all the chicks will be single factor dominant pied. if the pied is a recessive pied, then i think all the chicks will be split for recessive pied unless the hen is split for recessive pied.
pictures will help.
someone please correct me if i am wrong.

Mom looks like a greywing green, dad is a violet cobalt dominant pied.

Chicks will all be normal greens split for blue and greywing. About 50% will be dominant pied and/or carry the violet gene. If mom is split for blue already, expect 50% greens and blues with the same chance of dominant pied and violet for each chick as mentioned before.

There is always a chance that dad is split for greywing, opaline, ino, cinnamon, lacewing or any other recessive or sex linked gene but you will only find out when they breed

best of luck.

I agree, except that the pied type could be clearflight as I can't see any white feathers on the front. The breeding pattern for clearflight pied is the same as dominant pied
