Default Stumped on mutation

Hi everyone.

I have a very peculair chick. I have scanned the mutations in my head, and have not yet seen anything like this.

This chick is a normal blue but..... HAS WHITE FLIGHTS?

The chicks sire is a normal green cock. The hen is a cinnamon light green split blue.
The father also must be split blue, but originally I was expecting normal green's all round with cocks split cinnamon.

When looking in the nest today, I saw this chick. He looked different, and I couldn't quite put my finger on it (compared to his normal blue sis/brother)

The wing markings ALMOST look TCB on the flights, kind of grizzed in the secondaires also, but TCBs normally have that on their wing feathers.. Further observation also (just now ) has appeared that the feathers on the back/between wings are a light/grizzled grey also.
Any ideas?

No, not a cinnamon. I thought that at first, but closer inspection reavealed grey.
