I recently saw another thread where someone mentioned their hen was a splash and looked similar to this coloring. Is that what you would call this mottled coloring? Btw I am referring to the whitish hen with the darker gray spots

Yep. Splash. Some people who don't know anything much about genetics think of it as white. Might just be advertising to a lower knowledge point than yours.

Blue Black Splash is a really common gene. And you get blues blacks and splash from it. White's a totally other color.... And more relevantly... Is white. XD

I got them from McMurray Hatchery so surely they understand genetics.... I just checked their site again to make sure I didn't misunderstood. Sure enough, they talk about the blue color but then say chicks may also be black, white, or black/white combo. Nothing about splash unless that is what black/white combo is inferring?

The “white” and “black-white” is actually splash.
