What should I breed with a young Dilute Turqouise Male?

I just got an 8 month old Dilute Turquoise male (yellowish) and looking to hook him up with a female. What is my best bet to produce some colors beyond green? I read if you pick the wrong mutation as a mate then it will render all greens...
I'm new to the forum and used to breed split to blues as a hobby year ago.
Thanks in advance for the info!!

This is probably not a question many of us can answer, if you have bred before you may know more already.
All I know is the split colors of both birds matter and not just the visual, then you have dominant traits and resessive traits. It's also very important to know the history of the birds and be sure your not mixing anything to far from an original bloodline and don't mix certain mutation like fallow/fallow because you can produce genetic disorders, weak birds or sick birds.
It's very complex to me, perhaps talk to breeders about their birds and ask their opinion. Perhaps one of our members who breed will see this but it may be a while if they aren't on frequently.
