    Is blue x blue the only way to get splash?

    Blue x blue with give you 50% blue, 25% splash, 25% black

    Blue x splash give you 50% blue and 50% splash

    Splash x splash will give you 100% splash

    That would depend if your white is dominant or recessive and if its hiding something. White is a tricky one and not as obvious as most would think. You would have to know the lineage of your white bird to know for sure what genes it has.

    Oh, so white would be interesting to experiment with! Anyone have white non-bearded silkies? *haha*

    I recently hatched eggs from my Langshan pen. In there I have a black roo, black hen, and 2 white hens. I put 10 eggs in the bator, one was clear, 9 hatched...

    Aww... they are so cute! They almost look like my Ancona mix chicks, similar in coloring but mine are more yellow where yours have white.
