Cinnamon and opaline are entirely different genes, not moving together. In other words, cinnamon means cinnamon only, opaline means opaline only. If both cinnamon and opaline are present, then both cinnamon and opaline appearing together. It depends on the cock whether what gene is he split to ? This also depends on his parentage whether you are aware of their mutation or not.
