Default Cockatiel Genetic's

Hi!
I have recently been looking into what chicks I will get from my two cockatiels, Gadzooks and Skittles.

Skittles is visually a YF Pearl (hen) and I am unsure on her splits.

Gadzooks is a visual YF Cinnamon. I think he possibly is split to Pearl, but unsure. There was another cockatiel in with him at the petshop, and the man said both had come from the same breeder, but he was unsure if they came from the same clutch. It was a female, a Cinnamon pearl. Does that mean the if they are brother and sister, that Gadzooks is split to Pearl?

Here is what i got for putting Gadzooks as Cinnamon split to Pearl:

Motherearl
Father:Cinnamon Split To {X1: Pearl}

male offspring:
50% Pearl Split To {X1: Cinnamon}
50% Grey Split To {X1: Cinnamon} {X2: Pearl}

female offspring:
50% Cinnamon Pearl
50% Cinnamon


And here is what I got for putting normal cinnamon:
Motherearl
Father:Cinnamon

male offspring:
100% Grey Split To {X1: Cinnamon} {X2: Pearl}

female offspring:
100% Cinnamon


And as an of thought, which is a long shot, I am desperately hoping, That both are split to whiteface, giving me some WF Cinnamon Pearl chicks . But even then I only have a 13% chance of getting a female Whiteface Cinnamon Pearl.

Motherearl Split To Whiteface
Father:Cinnamon Split To Whiteface {X1: Pearl}

male offspring:
13% Whiteface Pearl Split To {X1: Cinnamon}
13% Whiteface Split To {X1: Cinnamon} {X2: Pearl}
13% Pearl Split To {X1: Cinnamon}
13% Grey Split To {X1: Cinnamon} {X2: Pearl}
25% Pearl Split To Whiteface {X1: Cinnamon}
25% Grey Split To Whiteface {X1: Cinnamon} {X2: Pearl}

female offspring:
13% Whiteface Cinnamon Pearl
13% Whiteface Cinnamon
13% Cinnamon Pearl
13% Cinnamon
25% Cinnamon Pearl Split To Whiteface
25% Cinnamon Split To Whiteface

Also I have a couple more questions:

Dragon

I am also having a major dilema with Dragon and his parents. I got him off my friend, and the father is a visual normal grey and the mother is A cinnamon Lutino of some sort we think. She look Lutino, but also a faint trace of Cinnamon.

They have produced two or three pied, Pearls, Normal once (Dragon) and this weird colour which is like a WF Pearl with orange cheek patches, but the Pearl markings turn yellow and grey in the body. Like a pale normal face, but the markings turn quite yellow in the wings and tail.

So what splits does that leave Dragon with?

your last description could possibly be a pied pearl.
Can't be a whiteface if it has orange cheeks.
Are the orange cheeks quite light or quite bright?
As far as I know the "ino" is sex linked so Dragon would have to be split "ino"
You can tell if they are split pied if they have a white spot on the back of their heads which Dragon's father would have to have.
Very tricky with the descriptions you have given, got any piccies

Both of dragons parents would have been at lease split to Pied for them to produce pied babies. Dragons mom may be a Lutino pearl? its hard to see the pearling on them but in the right lighting you can. Do you have a picture of the parents?
