    Hi all,

    I was wondering if there is a way to enhance the contrast of the blue spots in splash silkies???

    The question might not depend at all on the chicken race, but what I actually breed are silkies...

    Black is usually used in the breeding of blues/splashes but I do not know if there is a particular combination which better defines the spots (blue x blue, splash x splash (I guess not), black x splash once and then crossing F1 blues...)???

    I hope some of the experienced breeders of blue/splash, not necessarily "silkiers" might give me a hint on this...

    Thanks in advance!!!
