Default Outcomes of this pair?

Sprite and Memphis have bonded

Memphis is the green Cinnamon female
Sprite is the yellow male.

I dont know much, if anything about Yellow mutations.
So I guess im wondering if they breed, what mutations I would
get, and if they are sex linked due to Memphis being cinnamon opaline?

The outcome of this pair will depend on the mutation of the male. He appears to be a type 2 yellow face. If he is still quite young he could be a double factor spangle. If he is mature he is either a dark eyed clear or a double factor spangle masking recessive pied.

The hen is opaline cinnamon light green and if she is not split for blue all the chicks will be green series. Opaline or cinnamon will only be visible in the chicks if the male has either of these genes.

If the male is a dark eyed clear you will get some clearflight pieds. If he is double factor spangle the chicks will all be spangle. Recessive pied will only appear if both parents have a recessive pied gene

The type 2 yellow face will show on some of the chicks if the hen is split for blue
