If you choose a male that is a sex-linked mutation, like albino, cinnamon or opaline, all the female chicks will show that mutation.

If you choose a male of a dominant mutation, like dominant pied or spangle, half of the chicks will show the mutation. (Double factors of these mutations will produce 100% single factor)

If you choose a male that is a recessive mutation, like greywing, recessive pied, or clearwing, you will only get chicks of the mutation if the hen also has a gene for the mutation
