Black and blue are accepted colors in the Ameraucana Standard, but there is no splash. Why not? Does blue X blue not result in a percentage of splash like in other breeds? Or is it that splash can be produced, but it is just not a recognized color?
That is interesting. I wonder if it is because there is such a wide variation of splash appearance, whereas black and blue are more uniform.
So... I guess that means that most people only keep black roosters so that they can keep black and blue hens. What becomes of the blue roosters? Maybe they go live in mixed flocks and make baby easter eggers?
