Grey factor can either be shown as a grey tint (Single factor gray) or verygrey with not much body color (Double factor grey)

Depending on what factor you have you can get...
Normal greens with no grey factor
Green grey with a single factor grey or grey tint
Green grey with a double factor grey or dark or mostly grey

If the green bird is not split for blue and the grey bird is single factor you'd get 50% green & 50% grey green

If the green bird is split for blue and the grey is single factor you'd get 25% green, 25% grey green, 25% grey & 25% blue

If the grey bird is double factor grey all the chicks will be single factor grey (either grey green or grey)

You can't get double factor grey unless both parents have a grey factor. The dark factor of a grey bird is not the same as double factor grey. The dark factor refers to the base color of the bird (sky blue, cobalt or mauve) not the grey
