I'm going to be putting down three pairs to breed on the 23rd. Not sure what the final birds will be, but I would like to see if anyone could help me with some chick outcomes (gender and mutations). I'm just not to great with any of the charts yet...

Pair 1
Normal Light Green ****
+
Cinnamon Opaline Light Green Hen

Pair 2
Dominant Pied SF Dark Green ****
X
YellowFace II Cinnamon Sky Blue Hen

Pair 3
Dark Green Opaline ****
X
Mauve Opaline Dominant SF Hen

Thanks ahead of time for any help!
Knowing splits would help too....

Mauve Opaline Dominant SF Hen
Cinnamon - sex-linked mutation
Opaline - sex-linked mutation
Light green - 0 dark factor
Dark Green - 1 dark factor
Skyblue - 0 dark factor
Muave - 2 dark factors

Pair 1
Normal Light Green **** + Cinnamon Opaline Light Green Hen
Offsprings - 100% light green - 50% normal cocks split for cinnamon and opaline - 50% normal hens (assumption - parents do not have any hidden genes)

Pair 2
Dominant Pied SF Dark Green **** + YellowFace II Cinnamon Sky Blue Hen
Offsprings - 50% dominant pied hen - 50% normal cocks split for cinnamon - half dark green and half light green (assumption - parents do not have any hidden genes)

Pair 3
Dark Green Opaline **** + Mauve Opaline Dominant SF Hen
Offsprings - 50% dominant pied cocks split for opaline - 25% normal hens - 25% opaline hens - all 3 colours for lightgreen, darkgreen and olive green (assumption - parents do not have any hidden genes)

Thank you very much. And I myself don't know if there are any hidden genes...so once we pop out some chicks we'll know some more about the parents too! Should be exciting...Once again, thanks.

You got the first two right, assuming there are no splits, but pair three should be:

25% Dark green opaline
25% Olive opaline
25% Dark green opaline dominant pied
25% Olive opaline dominant pied

Visual opaline in both parents will produce 100% opaline chicks. Mauve is 2 dark factors & dark green is 1 dark factor so there will be no zero dark factor chicks (light green or sky blue)

Most green budgies are split for blue so if your greens are split for blue you will get some blue chicks
