I think this one may have gotten over looked, so I am sending it back to the top in hopes that one of our genetics experts will have an answer for you, Rachel :)

Pair 1 - I’m not sure that you have the mutations quite right. The female looks like a yellow face mauve. If she was grey she would not have purple cheek patches. Slate is a very rare mutation but if she is slate the mutation would not show in the chicks unless the male also had a slate gene. The male is either a mauve or a very dark cobalt.
Their chicks would be either all mauve or 50% each of mauve & cobalt. Half would be yellow face. Both birds could be carrying other mutations that could affect up to 25% of the chicks

Pair 2 - Type 1 yellow face cinnamon sky blue female & opaline cobalt male.
If the male is not split for cinnamon or anything else:
12.5% opaline sky blue females
12.5% yellow face opaline sky blue females
12.5% opaline cobalt females
12.5% yellow face opaline cobalt females
12.5% normal sky blue males split for cinnamon & opaline
12.5% yellow face sky blue males split for cinnamon & opaline
12.5% normal sky blue males split for cinnamon & opaline
12.5% yellow face sky blue males split for cinnamon & opaline
