I have a blue silver pied male and a blue hen split to silver pied and a white hen. I am very new at this and very confused about genetics. Could someone please let me know what chicks I will get. Thanks

Depending on the genetics of the hen that is split to silver pied.
If she is carrying pied, you will get some silver pied, some pied white eyed, some dark pied white eyed (carrying either one or two copies of the white eyed gene) and some split to pied or white and carrying either one or two copies of the white eyed gene.
If she is carrying white, you will get some silver pied, some pied white eyed, some white white eyed (carrying either one or two copies of the white eyed gene) and some split to pied or white and carrying either one or two copies of the white eyed gene.

from the hen that is white(and presumably not carrying any other colours or patterns) you should get white white-eyed (single copy) and pied white eyed
