    Hi, I was wondering if anyone had pictures of correct splash coloring. I have seen splash on many different websites that all look slightly different. Is there a certian pattern/coloring that is more preferable? For example is it better to have a splash with a white body and blue patches or one that is a light blueish color with dark blue patches. I was wondering what everyone prefered?

    According to the standard...

    "PLUMAGE: Slaty blue and white that has a faint bluish gray tinge. Blue in feathers in the form of large irregular shaped blobs as distinct from V-shaped ticking. Main tail feathers and primary wing feathers with a lesser amount of blue than the rest of the plumage.
    UNDERCOLOR: Slaty blue and sooty white, evenly distributed.

    Disqualifications: Any appearance of rust in plumage - More than 50 percent blue in plumage."
