Default Whick to breed first & possible chick mutations

So I'm mentally trying to figure out who I will be breeding first. My plan is to breed Skye (female), I'm just trying to decide which male. Here are the choices:

BlueBerry: Greywing sky blue
Cisco: opaline sky blue yellowface type 2
Lime: Greywing light green (could be cinnamon as well)
Onyx: Anthracite

I don't know yet what any of my birds are split for, so I'm going by looks alone. Skye is a sky blue greywing.

I'm thinking Skye & Blueberry: Sky blue greywing chicks.
With Cisco or Lime I think most of the chicks would be green.
And I have no idea with Onyx???

Any ideas of possible chick mutations???

Looking at your photos in your profile I'm going to guess your birds mutations.
BlueBerry: Greywing sky blue I didn't see any photos of him.
Cisco: Opaline sky blue yellow face type 2 I did see a photo of a male like this.
Lime: Greywing light green (could be cinnamon as well) I did see a photo of a male like this. But I'm not sure that he is cinnamon though.
Onyx: Anthracite I saw a photo of a grey normal male. But I don't think he was anthracite.
Skye: I did see a sky blue grey wing female

If it was me I would breed Cisco to Skye. I love a blue yellow face bird.
Cisco x Skye
100% blue
about 75% yellow face type two
100% females would be opaline
none of the chicks would be showing greywing but I think half will be split for it.

BlueBerry x Skye
100% blue
100% greywing

Lime x Skye
100% green unless lime is split for blue then about 50% green 50% blue
100% greywing

Onyx x Skye
50% normal
50% clearwing
50% blue
50% grey
no greywing but about half will be split for it.

I was thinking perhaps blueberry or cisco. I could put her with cisco and then put blueberry with Angel she's a Sky blue opaline so I would still have a clutch of blues. I do love cisco coloring and yellow face.

Skye does have the hots for Cisco already, but all my budgies male and female do.
