    I'M WANTING TO COMPLETE A PROJECT WITH MY COCHINS BUT DON'T KNOW HOW TO GO ABOUT DOING SO. I'M TRYING TO MAKE A BUFF SPLASH. (BUFF REPLACING THE BLUE/BLACK). WOULD BREED BUFF ROO OVER SPLASH HEN OR VICE VERSA? I THINK THIS WOULD BE A GORGEOUS COCHIN!

    I don't know if a buff splash is even possible.

    Would be interesting to find out though.

    a self buff bird should "Not" have any eumelanin(black feather color) showing at all, BUT some do, and some already carry blue(my self buff naked neck cochin carry blue in her, but you can only tell if you look very close to her tail feathers)..

    do you want a blue tailed buff cochin? (Splash is a double dose of blue Bl/Bl, blue is just one Bl/bl+)
