    If you breed black to splash this will produce 100% blue
    If you breed splash to splash you will produce 100% splash
    You can also breed black to black and produce 100% Black

    I personally would not cross into anything but blue, splash or black.

    As far as selling that really depends on quality and age.

    I agree that the value of the offspring is based on quality. I measure that against the breed SOP (standard of perfection). Generally it won't sell for much unless of show/breeder quality.
