    I have 5 BLRW and need a little help confirming whether they are blue or splash. They're from hatchery stock, so yes they're not the best examples of the breed. Anyway, these are my first BLRW and I want to be sure I'm gauging the colors correctly.

    Here are the two cockerels. I think both are Blue:

    There are the 3 pullets. I think they're all Splash. "A" has much better coloring - mahogany red. "B and C" are more gold than red.

    Thanks for helping.

    They all look splash, except for the one pullet in the background of the last pic that doesn't have a letter. Pretty!

    I agree they all look to be splash. The mahogany pullet is very pretty.

    I'm less sure about the girls (close ups might change that), but the boys are definitely splash.

    Thanks Everyone. I'll never get anything but splash by breeding splash x splash .

    Darn...looks like I'm back in the market for an adult, chicks or hatching eggs. *sigh*

    Very pretty, HRR. Thanks for sharing your photo. I see the difference in your roo....much more blue, especially in the tail, and a darker blue in the under body, compared to my two.
