Blacks and higher are tracked very closely by the floor. They're constantly counting them down. It's extremely likely that any blacks ratted are going to be added back to your total regardless after you leave. The floor person needs to account for changes in the number of black chips in the tray, and he's going to do that by assigning them to you. It's unlikely, but possible that this may get you some added unwanted scrutiny.
Greens are not tracked so closely, and there are often more players betting them throughout the night. Don't worry so much about ninja palming them one at a time ... instead just nonchalantly pocket a handful periodically when the floor person isn't staring directly at you. Your numbers should look significantly better using this approach.
