newbie question hear, I was wondering what the BBS rule is?
Black x Black = 100% black
Blue x Blue = 25% black 50% blue 25% splash
Blue x Black = 50% blue 50% black
Splash x Splash = 100% splash
Blue x Splash = 50% blue 50% splash
Black x Splash = 100% blue
I was just looking for this. I have a silkie sitting on
2 black x splash eggs
3 blue x splash eggs
Last time I let her sit 3 blue x splash and all babies were splash. I wanted some blues this time.
you have a 70% chance of a blue in this hatch!!
Awesome! I really want a blue. Crossing my fingers that is get a blue hen. With my luck they will be roosters
Awesome JetCat, Thank you for the help!
I'm desperately hunting for an answer so I'm hijacking this post! Sorry!! Last year I acquired a splash Orpington pullet. This year I went out and found a super nice blue cockerel. I have had them in a breeding pen by themselves for over 2 months with another splash pullet. In the last couple days, one of my hens has hatched out 5 babies. Now here is the question. Out of her eggs, she has 2 splash, 1 blue, and 2 BLACK. How did this happen? I can't find an answer anywhere since blue and splash are suppose to be 50% blue/50% splash. PS My girls had ZERO contact with any other rooster than the blue. The eggs she is hatching out are hers and her sister's only.
Post a picture of the pullets. What you think is a splash may be a really washed out blue.
I'ts possible that they are just really dark Blues.
If they're supposed to be 2 splash pullets, it sounds like they may be very washed out blues. At least one of them at least
