edited to say, first of all I should have said, what beautiful birds, they are very exciting to look at.

then they got my mind racing and fingers typing, but first- pretty birds.
very interesting. wonder if this could happen,
bearded splash roo x barred hen = 50% blue pullets and 50% blue, barred cocks
bearded blue barred roo x bearded, blue, feathered leg, olive egger hens (from another running project) = 25%black barred cocks, 25% black barred pullets and 25% blue barred cocks, 25% blue barred pullets (good luck with the beards and feathered legs here, I am guessing)
and if you had 1000 birds
bearded, blue barred, feathered leg, olive egger roo x bearded, blue barred, feathered leg, olive egger hen, and of course only pea combs and dark legs if we can do that = some likelihood of getting some really cool looking birds.
which of course one would then promptly take back to the splash pen.
just dreaming. good stuff here.
