I would like to know though what mutations the babies could possibly have?

i do not know the genetics of the parents of either of my birds unfortunately.

My Female is a Sky Blue Normal.

My Male is a Light Green clear flight split for recessive pied

...or so I've been told, only the flight feathers on his left side are clear but is is only just the flights the rest of thewing has markings....

any help I could get with this would be awesome!

MAJOR EDIT!!

I must be losing it, i also have some pictures tht i should have included!!

here is my female:





and here is my male, i did notice that all of the flights on his left side are a clear yellow but the outermost flight on his right side is also a clear yellow but is the only one on that side that is, unfortunately i do not have a picture of this yet.







these pictures are a bit older, i will take some new ones in the next couple of days

Greens split to blue
you'd get some clear flight pied -Assuming yours is - I've never heard of one only having clear flights on one side- but I guess it is possible :)
and some would be split to recessive pied

If you got any visual recessive pied then your female is split to it as well

Male Light Green clear flight split for recessive pied x Female Sky Blue Normal you should get...

100% greens unless the male is split for blue
about 50% clear flight pied if he is clear flightpied
50% normal
no recessive pied unless the female is split for it

Good luck

Assuming you have the mutations right (clearflight pieds are often identified incorrectly)
If the male is not split for blue & the female is not split for recessive pied
50% light green normal
50% light green clearflight pied

If the male is split for blue you'd get:
25% light green normal
25% light green clearflight pied
25% sky blue normal
25% sky blue clearflight pied

If the hen happens to be split for recessive pied you'd get:
37.5% normal
37.5% clearflight pied
12.5% recessive pied
12.5% dark eyed clear
