Default chicks mutations

My two pairs had their second clutch and will now have a restt till next year.First pair had 5 chicks,second pair had 6,unfortunately 2 chicks from second pair died.I need a little help with mutations and gender.
First pair.dad is a light green opaline split cinnamom(probably has a violet factor).mum is a cobalt violet spangle cinnamon.I'm sure about their gender becuse dad is opaline and mum isn't so opalines are hens non opalines cocks.
These are their chicks.
First chick Light green cinnamon cock.

Second chick dark green cock

Third chick skyblue opaline cinnnamon spangle hen.

Fourth chick cobalt violet cinnamon hen?

fifth chick normal cobalt cock?

Second pair.Dad is a goldenface skyblue spangle dom pied split opaline.mum is a yf2 dom pied opaline.
first chick.skyblue goldenface dom pied hen?

second chick yf2 skyblue hen?

Third chick is pretty unique.It is completely clear on it's belly(yellow on the upper belly,white on the lower)has a spot of green on each side of the neck that looks bordered with black)reduced stripes on the head and a blue rump.I think goldenface skyblue DF dom pied male.Can anybody spot opaline or spangle or both?


Fourth chick is similar to chick 3 but śhas a few blue feathers on it's belly and a few blue feathers on upper left wing.I think it's a yf2 skyblue DF dom pied hen?those two blue feathers that look bordered with black make me think it is also opaline and spangle.

for your first set dad is Split to blue since you got a blue baby and looks like you got all their mutations right Also all your visual greens will be split to blue

2nd group since both parents are dominant pied your last 2 babies are Double Factor Dominant pieds

3rd one being a yellow face type 2 - that is why its pretty much pure yellow - Can't tell if there is spangle or Opaline there though but this one looks male

the last pic I can't tell if there is opaline I'm trying to go by the baby bars but I just can't tell for some reason(usually i spot Opaline a mile away because of the bars on their head going down their necks) this one looks like a girl

the others genders Im not too sure on
