The hen is not old enough to breed yet but when she is the result should be someting like this: (assuming the **** is split for blue)

6.25% Light green dominant pied
6.25% Dark green dominant pied
3.125% Sky blue dominant pied
3.125% Cobalt dominant pied
3.125% Yellow face sky blue dominant pied
3.125% Yellow face cobalt dominant pied
6.25% Light green spangle
6.25% Dark green spangle
3.125% Sky blue spangle
3.125% Cobalt spangle
3.125% Yellow face sky blue spangle
3.125% Yellow face cobalt spangle
6.25% Light green dominant pied spangle
6.25% Dark green dominant pied spangle
3.125% Sky blue dominant pied spangle
3.125% Cobalt dominant pied spangle
3.125% Yellow face sky blue dominant pied spangle
3.125% Yellow face cobalt blue dominant pied spangle
6.25% Light green normal
6.25% Dark green normal
3.125% Sky blue normal
3.125% Cobalt normal
3.125% Yellow face sky blue normal
3.125% Yellow face cobalt normal

If the birds have genes for other mutations you could get some surprises as well

this is assuming the yellowface is a single factor right? how is it visually possible to know if one is a single or a double factor yellowface? or have i got the single/double factor concept wrong? :S

The yellow face appears to be type one so it will be single factor because double factor type 1 yellow face is visually white faced

(Occasionally double factor type 2 looks like single factor type 1)

the hen was with an egg when i posted this. my friend wanted me to ask what would be best for the female in this case. she is 4 months old. i have suggested that he foster the eggs and not breed her till she matures. need expert opinion..
thanks in advance

It would be better to foster the egg and move the hen to a different cage to stop her laying more eggs until she matures
