    We will soon have a breeding trio. Blue roo, blue hen and a black hen (jersey giants) What type of colors will their offspring be?

    Blue x Blue can give you blue, black and/or splash. Percentages will vary depending on the number of eggs hatched, but those are your possibilities.

    Blue x Black will give you blues and blacks. The 50/50 ratio most folks quote is for larger numbers of egg hatched than you will be hatching from those few birds at one time, so you could get all blues or all blacks or some of each in varying percentages.
