I think the first tasks of a newly graduated clutch would be resupplying the regular wings with firestone, checking for Thread burrows (and then burning them out), and possibly tagging along with the queens' wing to catch low-level Thread. The Weyrlingmaster could then see how well they performed in the presence of live Thread --- and the most effective of them would, I'm sure, be assigned to experienced wings, while others might be held back for a while.

I don't recall R'gul's "green wing" comment. It could mean any wing that hadn't flown Thread before --- which would actually include ALL the wings at the beginning of a Pass. At the end of Dragonflight, T'ton said the Bendenites had flown Thread very well "for a first battle, with every dragonman green as a hatchling."
