And here is the adult birds

Pastel, DEC and bronze fallow are all alleles of NSL ino (non sex linked ino).
This basically means they are modified forms of the same gene.
When you cross 2 alleles, pastel with ino for example, you never get pastel split ino, you get a bird that is both pastel and ino, called PastelIno. It's colour is somewhere inbetween the 2 mutations.
When these PastelIno birds are bred to a wildcolour for example, the mutations split amongst the young:
PastelIno x green =
50% green /pastel
50% green /ino
The same goes with all these alleles:
pastel x dec = PastelDEC
DEC x ino = DECino
A bird can never be split to an allele of the same gene.
Your birds appear to be PastelDEC or something similar, it's hard to tell though.
