Breed Information, Comments, and Experience with breed:
"Blue" Bantam Cochins are "Andalusion" Blues. The Andalusion Blue gene (Bl) is different from the Self-Blue, or Lavender (lav) gene. Andalusion Blue has very thin, black lacing that surrounds the edge of the blue feathers. Andalusion Blues are also sometimes referred to as B/B/S or BBS - this is because the gene is incomplete dominant, which means that it does not breed true. When breeding with the BL gene, the following colors are achieved: Blue x Blue = 50% Blue, 25% Black and 25% Splash; Blue x Splash = 50% Blue and 50% Splash; Blue x Black = 50% Blue and 50% Black; Splash x Black = 100% Blue; Splash x Splash = 100% Splash; Black x Black = 100% Black.
