Thanks, I read about the 50/25/25% coloring thing before and promptly forgot all about it! But thanks also for the info on which color might be which color as an adult, I haven't found that info anywhere on line yet. (Not to mention I'm spending more time looking at them than on line today!) I ordered all straight run and of the 15 golden buffs looks like I got mostly female. That is sort of nice but it's going to make it harder to pick ones to keep. All those roosters are going to freezer camp since they are hybrids. I wonder what a golden buff female crossed with a blue andalusian rooster will get me? Dang, I wish I had the facilities to keep multiple roosters because when the next chicks arrive in June I'll also have the possibility of a dark cornish and blue laced red wyandotte rooster.
Hey, would you have a photo of what an adult splash would look like? My husband just asked, and if he's interested I want to continue keeping him interested. He's my coop builder after all.
edtited to add: Oh, just found some photos on feathersite. They have a photo of a blue, black and splash chick. Mine are looking more blacks than blues, but then I really have no idea!

In the next to the last picture I see one, that is drinking, looks like it is going to be blue, and I see a couple of splashes in there also. The three pale yellow with a hint of blue will be splash.
