You could try private messaging Nev. He has lots of experience with budgies and I'm sure he'd be able to answer your question/s.

Eddie looks like a violet spangle. It is defenitely a spangle. If he isn't split for anything and lutino isn't masking some kind of mutation all the birds will be green - some green spangle. If he is violet there will be some green violet spangles as well. All the male babies will be split for ino. Lovely bird.

I'm not a mutations expert, but I'd like to give this a shot.

The cock bird appears to be opaline spangle cobalt grey and the hen is lutino.

Since green is dominant to blue, 100% of the chicks will be green series unless the hen is split to blue.

50% will be males split to ino and 50% will be females not split to ino.

50% will be males split to opaline and 50% will be female opalines.

50% will be spangles and 50% will be normals.

If cock bird is single factor grey, then 50% will be grey and 50% will not be grey.
If cock bird is double factor grey, then 100% will be grey.

I used this website to compute the percentages. https://www.****************/colorsguide.html.

I hope my estimates are close, if not dead on.

I think that you are correct with this. Just remember that the grey will be greygreen.
