Ok im gonna cross a blue/red toppy hen over a red splangled rooster. I want to get solid blue toppy offspring. Might have to breed blue male offspring back over mother hen to get blue toppys showing no red or spangle.these are pure sweedish blue flower chickens im gonna cross. I want to eventual have solid blue topknotted fowl

Breeding a blue/red female to a red male will get definite red offspring. If you want solid blue, breed a black or splash male to blue/red hen. Males have a stronger color influence then hens.
