no there is no order, the genes combine randomly to form the new chicks so it is a lucky dip which is which.

the percentages are based on lots and lots of clutches of chicks. if you had enough chicks eventually you would end up with 50% dec and 50% rec pied. but with just a few chicks you can have any proportion show up, you could get 100% dec for instance, because the genes come together randomly.
