    Yes, it looks like a Splash silkie not a Paint... Paints are black and white. Yours has blue not black.

    Quote:I have several paints that look similar to this. If there is only one single black feather mixed in with a lot of white feathers they sort of blend in and look blueish. Here's some of mine.

    yeah they look more splash but they came from Bobbi Porto's Paint pen so they will have paint gene anyway. [​IMG]
