What does the SOP call for?
Dang SC I'm going to have to get some eggs from you later this season if you end up with enough to sell. Those birds look amazing. Foley says he likes to breed his BLRW with a Blue x Blue. He said that is how the germans do it and it results in a more consistent blue on the offspring. I guess black or splash can have varied color of blue offspring? He said he does bring in a good black once every few years to darken the blue back up a bit. I know that's in BLR, but the gene should act the same since its the same BL gene.
Most suggestions I have gotten here and at the ABC say that blue/blue washes out the blues, but makes the best splash

So Is Clementine a blue or a splash?
She is sharp looking! I like her!
To my untrained eye I can't tell the difference on the combs but my best shots would be that Ravyn's is better?
I like the more compact look of my rooster's comb, and I think that is the more desirable, but hers has a better profile. A lot has to do with how a rooster is posing, too. The picture of Johnny with the girls makes his chest look huge.
Clementine is a splash, the product of Jack and the dark blue hen behind him
