    I am getting some silkie eggs to incabate. If the rooster is a splash and they have 1 splash,3 black, and 3 blue hen. Will the chicks be full blooded black, splash, or blue. I need them to show is it okay to show crossbreeds?[​IMG]

    You will get all splashes (I believe). Regardless of color, if mom & dad are both silkies, the chicks will all be full silkies.
