Blue Color

    Blue X Blue does not give 100% Blues

    Actually this is the way their matings go:

    Blue X Blue = 50% Blue, 25% Black , 25% Splash

    Blue X Splash = 50% Blue , 50% Splash

    Blue X Black = 50% Blue, 50% Black

    Black X Black = 100% Black

    Splash X Black = 100% Blue

    Splash X Splash = 100% Splash

    Only way to hypothetically get 100% Blue, is to do Black X Splash.

    Self Blue does breed true though.
