    My aunt wanted me to ask this question.

    What color would come from these breedings.

    Black and white?

    white and buff?

    black and buff?

    buff and partidge?

    white and blue?

    black and blue?

    I am pretty sure all these would be washed out colors or a mixed of colors of the two.

    All but the black x blue would give you mixed colors or leave you with pure looking colors with a mess of recessive genes.
    Black x blue = 50% black, 50% blue.
