    Have you called them? Blue, black, and splash can be distinguished at hatch, so I would think they would seperate them, since they sell all 3 colors. If they don't seperate them, the chances of getting the three colors greatly depends on what color the parent birds are. If the parent birds are both blue, the percent of each color is: Blue 50%; Black 25%; 25% splash. If one parent is blue and the other black, the percentages are: 50% blue; 50% black. If one parent is splash and the other black, all the chicks would be blue. So it really depends on what color the parents are. You should call Ideal hatchery and ask them how they do it.

    It's probably different for each customer. I doubt they send everyone the same color ratios or sex ratios. [​IMG]
