Default Mutation

I'm still trying to figure this bird's mutation. Here is a new pic of him. Hope this helps:

Mutation-greygreen%2520cin.jpg
I think it is a greygreen spangle / cin ino. Lindsey also said it could be a dilute?
My biggest question is: Is he a greygreen?
I want to breed with him again - specifically to determine if it is a greygreen - so I thought to put him with a Cobalt hen, but according to the genetic calculator al the birds are going to be green (Greygreen if he is a greygreen) I'm only going to get Greys if this bird is split for blue. Am I correct?
Earlier this year he was bred with a Greyspangle and I got a Cinnamon Grey Spangle - so this means that he is split for blue, but still I don't know if he is a greygreen!
Ok! Decided - I'm going to give him a cobalt hen.

He does look like a Dilute Spangle Greygreen to me.

Pairing him up with a Cobalt would prove if he is a greygreen provided tat you do in fact get some grey chicks. When we talk about percentages...it's just the possibility. You might get just Blues and greens with no greys, or all greys and greygreens. But yes, he has to be split for Blue for him to produce grey chicks with a cobalt.

I'd assume if he were olive green, his colour would have been slightly darker. Greygreens have this yellow lemon colour, which is what this guy looks like to me.

For Ilene: if your buttercup have red eyes, she is a creamino: a yellowface ino,
if she had black eyes, she is a yellowface dark eyed clear, maybe.
For Dries: is a greygreen for me too.

I see some blue on the bird? Because of that I don't think it is a creamino. I think it is a Yellow face DF Dominant pied or it could be a RP with soemthing else like Spangle. Would love to see a picture from the front.

Thank you for responding! (I hate it when people just visit, but don"t want to comment!)
The only "problem" I don't have a show type cobalt to give to this cock. Doesn't really matter. This is the first pairing where I actually thought about what I want to do. All my other pairings are basically on the spur of moment thing: the female are ready and the male are ready - there you go. Certainly not a very bright attitude! Things are changing on my side - thanks to the members of TB!
