I have a male tiel that's 2 years old. His parents are a lutino female and a male grey yellow cheek. Can he be split to yellow cheek? He has mated with a female grey white face split to pied. What kind of mutations, if any, will they produce?
Also, what can you get from a male cinnamon and a female lutino? Sorry for so many questions and thanks for your time.

The first pairing would produce normal hens, lutino hens, normal gray males, and maybe some yellow cheek hens (he could only be split to sex linked yellow cheek). If his parents were dominant yellow cheek a different but similar looking mutation he does not carry yellow cheek. Sex linked yellow cheek the only one he could be split to is a pretty rare mutation. I am leaning towards him not carrying yellow cheek.

The second pairing would produce cinnamon hens and normal gray males.

This assumes that there are no hidden splits. Some birds hide splits to other mutations and that should be considered.
