GCC splits without history

I have 3 GCC conures, my 2 hens are yellow sided and pineapple visually, my male is professed to be a "dilute pineapple" is there a test, something observable to determine what they are split for if there are splits? My yellow sided female appears to have turquoise that peaks through around her head and back, with an almost turquoise sheen across her green wing feathers. My female pineapple looks more dilute than other pineapples I have seen. And my male pineapple looks like a dilute from behind, but from the front almost like a suncheek with the red fading to faint orange al the way to the bottom of his beak. I eventually want to breed them and am hopeful I stumbled into a high chance of suncheeks and mooncheeks. I also think I may try to get a cinnamint male too. Any thoughts? If pictures would help I can get some better lit ones and attach them.

I think breeders would love the ability to have a test to see if a bird is split to anything! As far as I am aware, breeding them is the way to know.
That is what I've found so far. It would be great if there was a breeder registry that at least said what banded or chipped babies parents are. It would really help.
