    Quote:Any idea where I could find a roo for her? Or anyone that has hatching eggs? I have never seen any chicks/eggs labeled splash from hatcheries.

    Ideal has Splash OEGBs i believe. if you go on eggbid.. CHOICE (Gregg) Sells Splash. Blues.. blacks.. Silver duckwings etc. he usually sells trios (And their kind of pricey for most). About.. 75 each. 40-50 for shipping. BUT he has show qaulity ones.

    PS. May also try ebay or something. its possible they'll have eggs.. if you choose to purchase from Gregg he usually sells over at Ovabid.com now.

    Yes, she is a splash. You can breed her with a blue, black, or splash male (but you shouldn't breed splash x splash for too many generations, as it washes out the splash).

    So which color would be better to breed with splash? I have a blue splash roo, but he's not OEGB. they have all blue splash babies, but the babies are darker than the parents. So would blue or black be better? And is self blue the same as blue?
