    I recently got a chick at the local feed store, who was labeled as a Blue Andalusian but is actually splash. I really, really like her personality. I know if you breed a blue and a blue, you get some black, some blue, and some slash. What about a splash and a blue? What would the outcome of the chicks be?

    Splash x blue = 1/2 splash and 1/2 blue
    Splash x black = all blue
    Splash x splash = all splash
    Blue x blue = 1/4 black 1/2 blue 1/4 splash
    Blue x black = 1/2 blue 1/2 black

    Thank you! I guess I'll have to try to find a black rooster.
