    HI, try Halo. I bought eggs from her this summer and hatched out some very nice blues. [​IMG]

    Hi, they are also very friendly birds. I'm very pleased with them. I have a white rock rooster I'm going to cross on the splash and blue hens. I will cross the splash rooster on my barred hens. They will be sex links. Looking forward to selling chicks this spring.

    Quote:White rocks often carry sex linked barring, dominant white and blue so you may wind up with all kinds of colors. The male should be recessive white, if so then the cross would be like he is black.

    Hi, what colors can I expect with the blue and splash crossed with the white, depending on his genes? I will probably only know by doing some test breeding right?
