    splash x black = 100% blue
    splash x splash = splash
    black x black = black
    blue x blue = 50% blue 25% splash 25% black
    blue x black = 50% blue 50 % black
    blue x splash = 50% blue 50% splash

    They will produce all blues but if you breed a splash to a black from a blue breeding you will get better lacing and better colored birds.
