I don't know a terrible lot about mutations but I am pretty sure that if they arn't split to anything else that anything you put them with would result mostly in greens because it is the dominant colour.

Also not a breeder but I know that a lot of breeders use this genetic calculator to help them figure it out:

Only new at mutations myself but i think to produce mutation colours quickly from normal greens you probably would be best to pair to another co-dominant mutation such as grey (bluegrey) and violet (blueviolet),both these depending on which sex is what% will give coloured young such as greygreen/blue &violet green/blue. I don't know how many other colours are good straight up but more experienced breeders may help. Thanks Mick.

Depends on how much you want to spend. You can get a turquoise violet pallid cockand all your female babies would be violetgreen lace wings and green lace wings all split to blue or turquoise .all the mail babies would be green or violet green split to blue or turquoise.

They will all be green, unless the cock splits for blue (or turquoise), then you can get green and blue (or turquoise).
