I'd posed a question on ASBC site about the faded splashes if they'd be DQ'd due to color.  Thanks to the responses---very helpful folks--they said splashes have a wide range of light to dark.  So Blizzard & Maya are headed to their first show in April.

I am just getting into raising sweet silkies.  I have a few that are a light dusty blue.  Is this ok?  Is there a scale from light to dark with blues too?

My breeding flocks; Buckeyes, BLRW, Buff Favorelles, Muscovy ducks, Call ducks, Mandarin ducks, mallard ducks and Sebastopol geese.  God bless!
