    black, blue or splash! They all can produce blue, black or splash, depending on which of the genes they pass down. [​IMG]

    Both Coasts
    Splash x splash = 100% splash

    Splash x blue = 50% splash and 50% blue

    Splash x black = 100% blue

    Blue x black = 50% blue and 50% black

    Black x black = 100% black
