Unless they are split for blue, you would get all greens

Exactly right. You female isnt split for anything, what you
see is what you get. You male shows green but MAY be split
for blue (green/blue) Therfore he can throw coloruful babies
other than green

Someone may be able to give you %'s on what you will get,
although like I said, not sure on whether he is split. If they
breed you will soon know. If you dont already know ( for readers)
Do some research before breeding

If they are both normal green about 75% of the chicks will be normal green. If both birds are split for the same recessive mutation or if the male is split for a sex-linked mutation these could show in about 25% of the chicks

I'd think you'd just get the standard green a blue wouldn't you. Given he is split.
Taking a stab seeming as I'm horrible at this technical stuff

assuming there are no splits, it would be 100% normal light green

if they are just greens then all green.

if they are carrying the blue gene each then you will get blues also.

they may also be carrying different varieties that can turn up in the chicks, so two normal greens can potentially turn up all sorts...

Sorry but this is not correct (unless you are looking at the pedigree on this hen). Not all mutations are on the female gean.
