    You'd get 50% chance of a mostly rumpless bird, 50% chance of a tailed bird. They'll all have a naked neck, but with large "bowties" of feathering covering the front lower neck.

    They'll have (usually tall or floppy) pea combs, they'll lay green eggs, and they will have a range of yellow and/or green legs.

    You'll get 100% blue birds that have a lot of red/gold leakage, smudging, pencilling, etc.
