I was just wondering if I bred this pair what color mutations the chicks would be. My guess is ...

100% opaline female chicks
100% normal males 50% split for opaline
50% normal males 50% cinnamon males 25% split for cinnamon
50% normal females 50% cinnamon females
50% yellow face 50% white face
100% single factor violet
50% grey
50% blue 50% green
Maybe some recessive pieds if both are split for it. I think that's it. What do you think?

Male Dusty: Opaline, yellow face type 2, grey, double factor violet/ split for cinnamon maybe recessive pied

Feamle Ginger: Cinnamon, olive green/ split for blue

all would be ok, but for me Dusty is mauve...
If i'm right it would be - no grey chicks,
100% chicks with 2 dark factors

greys have either blue or grey cheekpatches rather than violet, they also have black tail feathers rather than blue. so many greys have blue cheek patches.

when you add violet to grey you get violet cheekpatches so they look a lot like mauves...

a couple of things i noticed...
100% opaline female chicks
100% normal males 50% split for opaline all males split for opaline as the dad will give them all opaline genes.
50% normal males 50% cinnamon males 25% split for cinnamon all normal males will be split cinnamon as the hen will give them all a cinnamon gene.
50% normal females 50% cinnamon females
50% yellow face 50% white face
100% single factor violet
50% grey
50% blue 50% green
