If there are no hidden splits, all chicks will be normal grey split to whiteface, and the boys will also be split to pearl. It looks like mom is split to pied, so you could get some pied splits too. But most cockatiels do have some hidden splits, so you could see some interesting colors in the chicks.

If dad is split to whiteface, you can get WF chicks. If he's split to pearl, you can get pearl chicks of both sexes. If he's split to cinnamon or lutino, you can get girls with that mutation. If he's split to pied, you can get pied chicks.
