I know it's some combination of Lutino and Whiteface but I know you can't expect to get one by just crossing a Lutino and a Whiteface. Do you have to have one or both that are Lutino split for White face

well... to get White face both parents have to be visual and or split whiteface... being visual more likely to get whitefaces...

and dad has to be at least split lutino to get lutino females... and if mom is lutino also (only visual) then you could end up with lutino males....

lutino to lutino is not recommended for future breeding issues as bald spots... so a whiteface female with a whiteface lutino males should do it

I thought if I bred a Lutino male to a Whiteface hen I would get female Lutinos split to Whiteface and normal grey males split to Whiteface.

To produce a Whiteface Lutino hen, both parents must carry Whiteface with the male being either Lutino or split Lutino. To produce a Whiteface Lutino cock, the hen must also be Lutino.

And yes if you bred a Lutino male to a Whiteface hen you will get Lutino females split to Whiteface and grey males split to Whiteface, Lutino.
