The outcome of the chicks will depend very much on hidden mutations in the cock or the hen.

1. If cock and hen are not split for any mutations, you will get :
- all lightgreen chicks
- half dorminant pieds (assuming cock is dominant pied and not recessive)
- half normals
- all male chicks will be split for cinnamon and opaline

2. If hen is split for blue and cock is not split for any mutation. you will get :
- lightgreen and skyblue chick
- the rest are same as above mentioned

3. If cock is split for cinnamon and hen is not split for any mutation, you will get :
- all lightgreen chicks
- cinnamon chicks (both gender)
- dorminant pieds

4. If cock is split for opaline and hen is not split for any mutation, you will get :
- all lightgreen chicks
- opaline chicks (both gender)
- dorminant pieds

As you can see, the hidden mutations make it hard to ascertain the chicks until the real outcome appears, then only you will know what split mutations your cock and hen has ?
