    Okay so i have both of these here. Both are "spash".
    Can you tell me whats really splash, and what the judges prefer in splash.
    Also if one is splash whats the other and what would i enter them as?

    I think so. I should know I've had chickens so long but I'm no expert. [​IMG] Pretty birds though [​IMG]

    Maybe I am wrong, I am sure someone will tell you but aren't the top ones blue splash but the bottom one black splash(or maybe they are called something else?)?

    The top ones are the splashes I'm used to. The bottom one looks to me more mottled with lots of white, but I'll defer to the experts on this one.

    Both are splash. You'll see varying degrees.

    I believe they're all splash. Splash is definied as a white base with blue and/or black markings. It is a very variable coloration.

    It is certainly variable. Some splashes almost look lavender and some look pearly white, both with the accent feathers.
