Okay, so I asked an experienced breeder, and she said that your male is actually a whiteface emerald. Due to genetics, he is split to cinnamon and lutino. Since cinnamon, lutino, and pearl are sex-linked, a male has to be visual or split to any of those to have a chick with those colors. The female can only be visual (NOT SPLIT) to those mutations. Since I see one of your chicks look to be lutino (possibly two), then they will automatically be females. Since there are no pearl chicks, it must mean your male isn't split to pearl. And yes, the last picture is a cinnamon chick which means that the father is split to cinnamon. It looks like your female is a cinnamon pearl and if you DNA the chick and it turns out it is a male, then your female is indeed a cinnamon pearl. I will insert a link for you to look at if you want:

Thank you. I've been trying to figure this out for a couple of weeks
