As far as the the pups being coated it will depend on if the female carries the coat gene (it is a recessive so two coat genes must be present for a dog to be coated).
Most Bi-colors carry one BI gene and one black (on occasion they may carry two BI genes, but this seems to be more rare). So, if bred to a black (who carries 2 black genes) there is a 50% probability that you would get blacks and a 50% chance for more BI's. If bred to another BI the probability becomes 25% would be homozygous BI (carry two Bi genes), 50% heterozygous BI (one BI gene, one black) and 25% blacks.
If bred to a bl/tan it will depend on what other colors the B/T dog carries. If the dog carries two B/T genes then you would get all b/t dog. Approximately 50% would carry BI and 50% would carry black. Many would carry a more extended blanket, but not all. It would depend on other genes. If the B/T dog carries black then you would get about 25% BI, 25% black and 50% would be B/T with varying types of blankets.
