Default colored tail vs no color tail

So all four chicks are out of the nest finally!

Dad is a dominant pied yellow/green, and mom is a regular sky blue.
I got 2 blue pieds and 2 yellow pieds.

In each color, i got 1 bird with a no color tail(meaning all white or all yellow), and 1 bird with colored tails(meaning blue feathers and yellow feathers, respectively).

If I am right, I got only one male chick, and its a blue and its actually Humpty from the "Poked Egg" thread, and he has the white tail.
Sexing is merely speculation at this point, they are still only 4/5 weeks old.

What is the significance of this tail coloring difference?
I know dad must have been split to blue obviously to be able to get blue chicks, right?
Dad also has no dark feathers on his wings or back, only a bit on his neck, which I was hoping the chicks would inherit as well but none did.

Makes me curious about what the 5th chick that died at 1 day old would have looked like.

You know I looked at both pics and didn't notice. But then you pointed it out so I had to go look again.

Sounds like dad might be a double factor dominant pied, which is why you got all pied chicks. But unless mom is a dominant pied too, you wouldn't get any that look like dad.

I think the clear tail vs colored tail is probably just luck of the draw

According to show rules all birds need two long tail feathers. Normal will be dark blue or blacks, dom pieds are white. Clearflight have white Dutch pied are white/ except in case of frosted Dutch pied in which tail could be blue or white or combo like the rec pied Spangles are white. A black or bicolor tail is a fault in spangle. Check Lindseys chart or the New WBO color standards Available in US from ABS or BAA. Best wishes, Jo Ann
