What colors can you mix to get a blue silkie?

I have a few silkies and I really like the blue, but I don't have that color. Does anyone know what two colors mix to make a blue silkie?

Black x splash give you all blues.

Only crosses of Splash and Blue will produce Blue. Blue X Blue will give 50% Blues, 25% Splash, and 25% Black. Blue X Splash will give 50% Blue and 50% Splash. Blue X Black will give 50% Blue and 50% Black. Splash X Black will give 100% Blue.

Yes, if you already had a blue you could breed to black, blue, or splash to make more blues. The black to splash will give you only blue so that is the surest way to get blues to your heart's content without having a blue to work with already. wink.png
