The hen is a normal blue and the cock is a dominant pied green.
If they are not carrying genes for other mutations their chicks should be about half dominant pied and half normal. They will all be green series unless your cock bird is split for blue

I touched the egg and I think that was the reason. Now I am waitin for the chicks. It will be approx. the 25 of this month for the first clutch. Will post the results then.

If the cock is split for blue the expected ratio would be 50% green series, 50% blue series

I hope it is split for blue. All green series would be too plain Dunno why but I like blue series more than any. But no matter what colour if the lil chicks will be parents they'd be split for blue, wouldn't they?
