He'll pass each split to 50% of his children and won't pass it to 50% of the others. The girls who get the pearl and/or ino genes will be visual for the color, but the boys who get it will only be split.

Pearl and lutino are sex-linked mutations, so this article might help explain the way these genes are inheritied: Little Feathered Buddies sex-linked mutations

The crossover effect is also very relevant here. I don't know whether your male has his pearl and ino splits on the same X chromosome or if they're on different chromosomes. But in either case, these splits might be passed down together or separately. The babies might get both genes, just one, or neither.

Cinnamon is also a sex-linked mutation. Your male is visual cinnamon, which means that all of the girls will be cinnamon and all of the boys will be split to cinnamon. You may not be able to see the cinnamon on the lutino girls, but it will be there. With cinnamon lutino, the cinnamon tends to be more visible in adult birds than in babies. It usually shows itself as the "dirty lutino" look, with a brownish tint on the flight feathers and tail feathers, as if the feathers are dirty.
