Feathersite had them listed as Paint, i guess they're probably considered different because they're colors are not as "blurred" as the splashes. this is my first time hearing of them.

different genes to splash... I think it's called ermine..

The difference between pets and pests is only on which side of the fence they're standing... keep your animals in your own property.

Yes, the paint silkies are not blue/splash--genotype there is blbl.  I believe it is supposed to be based on I plus not sure what else.  Only available in Europe, although there is a rumour that some eggs have been imported.

Cuckoos are available--the trick is finding one with dark skin.

It's very expensive and there's no guarantee that anything will hatch.
