Ok I believe I just found out something, so if I may i will try to answer my own question :

would breeding a self-blue dilute the red more than a standard blue, therfore making it harder to get a deep red color?

I prob. just added on to my Ignoramus Noobus tally didn't I?

This would work if the splash was columbian restricted and carried two copies of the pattern gene. It is possible but I would think unlikely.


The percentages are mixed up- if you cross two blue birds you get a 1:2:1 phenotypic ratio (25% to 50% to 25%) or 1 gold laced with black to 2 gold laced with blue to 1 gold laced with white (splash). laced.

I got this cockerel last week. The lady who sold him to me didn't seem to know what breed he is, except that he is a bantam cochin. But someone who saw his pics thought he might be a blue laced red. I don't know, but the colors certainly do seem to be red laced on blue. What breed or mix do you guys think he might be?
