    I'm wondering if blue mottled d'uccles follow the blue rules and produce blue, black, and splash? Or would blue x black just give shades of gray? I keep trying for black mottled with shipped eggs but mostly get blues. Do breeders typically keep blue and black together? Thanks!

    Quote:As long as the blue mottled is andalusian blue, if you put blue x blue, and produce adequate numbers, you will get a percentage of black mottled.
