Good! Most mutations have violet cheek patches like your birds.

Dad is normal green (he looks dark green/one dark factor in that photo) and mother hen is normal blue (she looks cobalt blue/one dark factor in that photo). Since green is dominant to blue, and both parents are normal, all of the chicks probably will be normal green like dad. You could get other mutations besides normal if one or both birds are split to that mutation. (A "split" mutation is a hidden mutation that isn't known until a bird reproduces.) For example, if dad is split to blue, you'll get 50% green and 50% blue chicks. And/or if dad and mother hen are both split to recessive pied, you could get some recessive pied chicks.

Please continue to post pictures.

..agreed green chick!......

...but there is always a chance that there could be a yellow face(YF), even in this green chick..only problem, you won't know this as the green chick will have same "standard yellow face" in the yellow-series bird (being green), as apply to dad...this despite such "proper yellow-face(YF)" (associated with white-series, in blue birds) gene coming from mom...

...will have to test breed to be sure, if such green chick has indeed inherited such YF from mom...

The parest are stunning!...enjoy them...and do post more,as baby grows!

The younger chick is going to be a normal blue like momma (although not necessarily the same shade of blue).

Your chicks are adorable!
