the splash marans and the blue wheaten ams should make 50% blue copper & 50% splash copper chicks, i think.
We just started a pen of olive eggers. We put a Splash Marans roo, who happens to be showing a lot of copper and blue, over our easter eggers which include a couple of wheaten ameracauna hens that washed out of that pen. We previously had a blue wheaten ameracauna roo over the easter egger hens we picked up at the local feed barn. That put some nice blue highlights on some of the hens and made for better beards. I am very intereted to see how the Splash Marans, who of course is largely white, will influence the color of the offspring.
