Chick mutation predictions
it occurred to me that I've never actually gotten an expert's opinion about what my two birds chicks would be colored.
Male: Opaline violet mauve
Female: light green/ dark green, violet

here's a picture of my female, I'm not sure about her dark factor because violet add darkness i think.

The female chicks will be opaline. If your hen is split to blue, you can expect cobalts, mauves, olives and dark greens (I think your hen is a dark green). If she's a light green, that changes to cobalts and dark greens only. If she's not split, you will get only the green colors mentioned above and the chicks will be split to blue.
