    It's blue. When you put splash over black you get blue, when you put it over splash or blue you get splash or blue.

    theroretically I would think they'd be blue but I heard some people comment they've had a few blacks crop-out so I wasn't sure. They're much darker than the rest of my blues

    They are just dark blues.
     
  5. So what if you crossed a black roo with black & splash hens?

    black X black = black
    black X splash = blue

    I have some Blue Andalusian and a Blue Jersey Giant. The top pic is a blue and the bottom is a black. I also have a splash andalusian which is a white chick that upon feathering is getting blue spots.
