    I kinda understand some of the blue breeding. I have Blue Andalusians, one of each roosters Splash, Blue, and Black.
    I have all 3 colors in the hens. I know I will get all 3 colors in the chicks.
    What my question is I have some hens in the same pen with the blues that are 1 black australorp, 1 silver laced wyandotte, and the rest are mix breeds all lay a brown egg.
    The colors on the mixes are black, red, and a white with black splash.
    What color would be produced with this cross?
    Right now the dominant roo is the splash.
    Splash- blue- black X black =
    spl-bl-bk X silver laced=
    spl-bl- bk- X red=
    spl- bl- bk X white=
    Thank you for your help

    I am by far an expert, but in my flock the dominant roo is a blue splash. All my chicks are either black and white, dark blue splash, or light blue splash. These are from blue splash hens (light blue splash chicks) black hens (black and white, and dark blues) and a red hen(dark blue splash). A lot of the red hens chicks have red speckles on their wings, and most of these hatched with red heads, so it is hard to say what color they will end up. But that is how my blue is going! I have seen so many blue chicks, I am sick of them!! It kinda takes the fun out of it when you know what they're gonna look like!!

    BTW, he even bred my BB red OEG hen, and guess what I got? Blue chicks!! They are only day olds, so they might turn out to be blue splash, it's hard to say. The color they are now surely looks that way!
