Are you sure your bird is a dark eyed clear. Most black eyed plain yellow birds are not dark eyed clears - these are a combination of clearflight pied and recessive pied.
If she is a dark eyed clear and the **** is not split for recessive pied or blue the expected result would be:
50% normal green
50% clearflight pied

If the hen is actually a double factor spangle the result would be:
100% spangle

Normal cobalt **** with
dark green recessive pied hen
If the **** is not split for recessive pied and the hen is not split for blue the expected result would be:
100% normal green (all three shades)

If the **** is split for recessive pied you could expect 50% recessive pieds

Great thanks for you
I need years to understand these genetic codes
