    It depends on what color combination you're going for with
    the Lutinos. Are you sure you have 2 males? Lutino is a sex
    linked color so, depending on what you pair them with, you'll
    know the sex of the babies when they start to feather. The
    link below is a genetics calculator. You can plug in the
    different mutations and see what colors and sexes you would
    get. It's fun to play with and give you an idea of what
    you're looking for.

    As far as the fischers long as you pair them with
    other fischers you'll be ok. It's when you cross them with a
    masked or a peachface is when you get in to hybrids. The
    others are just color mutations within the breed. Your green
    (normal color) will be your dominant color. I'm not sure
    about the other ones as I don't breed fischers. A search on
    the net will be able to tell you that though. Just look up
    fischers mutations.

    Good luck,
