What would happen if I paired a light green cinnamon opaline with a cobalt budgie?

Thanks

Is the cinnamon opaline the male or the female? It makes a big difference to the outcome because they are both sex-linked genes.

If the light green cinnamon opaline is the male and the cobalt is the female you'd get:
Cinnamon opaline hens and normal cocks which would be split for cinnamon & opaline.
If the green bird was split not for blue they would all be either light green or dark green. If the green bird was split for blue you'd also get sky blue and cobalt

If the light green cinnamon opaline is the female and the cobalt is the male you'd get all normal chicks unless the **** bird was split for either cinnamon or opaline. If he was split for either or both mutations about half of the chicks would be the of the sex-linked mutation (both sexes) and half would be normals
