My handsome Blue Wheaten at 3.5 months. He will probably make cute babies with my Splash Wheaten Ameraucana girl in 3 months.

How do you get blue silver?

Cross a silver cock over blue hens and then breed the F1 among themselves.   Hatch enough and you should have some blue silver chicks.  They would be e+ (wildtype), but with blue replacing the black areas. 

I'm working on lavender silvers and have had some beautiful bantams.

What many call "silver blue" I believe is more properly referred to as "blue birchen".  It can be confusing for some no matter what others say.
