OK, let me try, but please understand that I'm no expert.
Pair 1:
If they aren't split for anything you will get green series babies - some violet greens. I haven't seen one before or maybe I didn't know they were violet greens.
Pair 2:
All will be normal green birds ; the males woll be split Opaline. Some will be YF but you will not be able to see it.
Pair 3:
There will be Dom pieds DFj dom pieds SF - some in combination with Spangle
Pair 4:
Green and blue (sky) spangles; normal green and blues - all males will be split Opalines
Pair 5:
Green, sky blue, cobalt and violet Spangles and normals in all the named colours.
Violet spangles are very lovely birds.
Good luck with breeding programme.

I agree with Dries :)

I would only like to add 2 things in addition-

Pair 1 all the chicks will be split dilute.

Pair 3 will have some normals in addition to the pied and spangle (Unless one of the dominant pieds is DF)

You are going to have some stunners Pate! :thumbsup:

Pair #1:
Lola-Green Dilute-Pet Type
Thunder-Normal Violet-Cross-Breed (50% Pet Type, 50% Exhibition Type)
If Lola is not split for blue & Thunder is not split for dilute all the chicks will be normal green, Half of them will have the violet mutation but you probably won't be able to see it.

Pair #2:
Lulu-Yellow Face Type 1 Opaline Sky Blue-Pet Type
Tate-Normal Light Green (Not sure if he is split for blue)-Pet Type
If Tate is not split for blue or opaline all the chicks will be normal green. If Tate is split for blue you can expect 50% green, 25% blue & 25% yellow face blue. You will only get opaline chicks if Tate is split for opaline

Pair #3:
Liah-Green Dominant Pied Spangle-Pet Type
Timmy-Green Dominant Pied-Pet Type
Unless both birds are split for blue the chicks will all be green series
12.5% double factor dominant pied green
25% single factor dominant pied green
12.5% normal green
12.5% double factor dominant pied single factor spangle green
25% dominant pied spangle green
12.5% spangle green

Pair #4:
Libby-Opaline Sky Blue Spangle-Exhibition Type
Tibbles-Normal Light Green (IS split for blue)-Exhibition Type
25% normal sky blue
25% normal light green

25% spangle light green
No opaline unless Tibbles is split for opaline

Half of these chicks will inherit violet but you will probably only be able to see it on the cobalts
