    Can you explain the buff splash hen to me? I'm a bit confused.

    Quote:I was a bit confused about her color to. I took a picture with me to show Bamachicken and she told me that she was a Buff Splash. I can take a better picture of her if I need to so that you can see better. She is not a splash though, She does have the buff coloring coming through. Sorry I can not tell you more.

    I bet she is the result of a buff to splash breeding. A few years ago, I think there were some breeders who bred buffs to splash to produce buff birds with less color. So instead of buff birds with black in the tail and wings, they ended up with buffs with blue in the tail and wings.

    I bet she is a splash with the buff "overcoat" if you will... hmm, interesting. I'd like to see one in person.

    You would surely know more than I would. So I take your word for it. I will try to get you some better pics in a few.

    I can't see the pics very well from my phone. But I believe the roo you have from me is actually a blue boy. If he were splash, he would be a whitish-silver with darker splotches. I will try to post a pic later of a splash. I don't have any grey. So it can't be grey. But I do have lots of blue, so he is most likely blue!

    I thought he was blue to, but when I showed him to Bamachicken she said grey splash [​IMG] I am glad you came around and told me.

    You're welcome. I just have some light blue birds which is not as common.

    I believe you are right. But I am no expert.
