    I am thinking of experimenting with trying to get a blue color from black and white JGs.
    How does one do this? Advice from someone who knows how to get a blue coloring would be greatly appreciated.

    You have to have a blue bird to cross with the black. The white could carry blue but I would not count on it being blue under the white. If you cross the white with the black you will most likely get more black.

    what would be the procedure if I had any of the following:
    blue hen
    blue roo
    blue-carrying but not blue hen
    blue-carrying but not blue roo
    ... and the black and whites.

    I do not understand your question. What will be your crosses?
