What kind of babies would you get if you breed a sky blue pied **** with a light green cinnamon opaline hen?

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

1. If **** and hen are not split for any mutations, you will get :
- all lightgreen chicks
- half dorminant pieds (assuming **** 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 **** is not split for any mutation. you will get :
- lightgreen and skyblue chick
- the rest are same as above mentioned

3. If **** 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 **** 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 **** and hen has ?
