    When you breed blue to blue, you can get blue, black or splash. Splash is a component you will encounter with the blues. If you have only black roo over blue hens or blue roo over black hens, you get only blacks and blues, but if you have blue roo over blue hens, as I have, there is always the possibility of getting blacks and an occasional splash in addition to blues.
    If you breed black to splash, you will get 100% blue chicks, so splash is needed if you want 100% blues.
