No I don't think so only is he is an Opaline will you get all Opaline females.
A split Opaline paired to a normal hen:

25% Male normal
25% Male split for opaline
25% Female normal
25% Female opaline

being split means he has an opaline gene on one x chromosome and a non-opaline gene on his other x chromosome. so he can pass on either an oplaine or a non-opaline to any of his chicks.

therefore half his daughters can be opaline and half can be non opaline.
