    Would it be possible to see pictures of each color of hens? I'm brand new to the world of backyard chickens and I'd love to see what each of these colors look like in comparison. Thanks in advance!

    Ok, so when I read about "splash" colors is that just an unaccepted color or does that make the bird an EE? I really appreciate all the information I am getting here so far!

    Splash is an unrecognized color but happens with blue breeding. You can't show them but you use them for blue breeding.They are an EE of sorts like lavender because they are a non accepted color but are Ameraucana. EE's you just don't know what's hiding there but the splash Ameraucana you know.

    You can show them under AOV. Although, sometimes you see EE's shown under that, too. We will be showing Lav this year. I dont tend to think of the Splashes first to show,
    just bc we have nice blues and blacks, I guess. We will show splash Silkies and Cochins.
