    Very Nice Jerry! Have they set up a standard for the paints yet? I have a Black Splash pullet, now would that be called a paint? She looks just like a blue splash, except she is black and white.

    probably only about 25 paints in North America. Paints are different from splash in that paints are white with black spots like the paint horse
