    Does anyone know if the Blue Mottled Splash color has been recognized for showing? Basically they are sports, but I know in the OE have accepted the sports if entered as splash and wonder if the d'Uccles have done the same?

    I don't see how to attach photos or I would do so.

    Unfortunately, the Blue Mottled Splash color has not been recognized by the APA. Despite the fact that D'uccles also come in Buff mottled, Blue mottled, Blue Mille Fleur, Buff Colombian, Brown red, Red, Buff, Blue, Colombian, Lavender, Splash, and Lemon, the APA only officially recognizes seven varieties: Black (admitted 1996), Golden Neck (1996), Mille Fleur (1914), Mottled (1996), Porcelain (1965), Self Blue (1996), and White (1981). Sorry.
