as huskymom said, all the chicks will be green unless the hen is split for blue. and about the pied gene; i think half of the chicks will be pied if the male is dominant pied (single factor) and the other half will be normals. if the pied is a double factor dominant, then all the chicks will be single factor dominant pied. if the pied is a recessive pied, then i think all the chicks will be split for recessive pied unless the hen is split for recessive pied.
pictures will help.
someone please correct me if i am wrong.

Mom looks like a greywing green, dad is a violet cobalt dominant pied.

Chicks will all be normal greens split for blue and greywing. About 50% will be dominant pied and/or carry the violet gene. If mom is split for blue already, expect 50% greens and blues with the same chance of dominant pied and violet for each chick as mentioned before.

There is always a chance that dad is split for greywing, opaline, ino, cinnamon, lacewing or any other recessive or sex linked gene but you will only find out when they breed :D

best of luck.

I agree, except that the pied type could be clearflight as I can't see any white feathers on the front. The breeding pattern for clearflight pied is the same as dominant pied
