    Well, for three different colors, blue/black/splash, you could get Orpingtons or true Ameraucanas in that color variety. Two blues bred together can give you all three of those. Then, add some reds, like the deep mahogany red Rhode Island Reds and some Buff Orps, Rocks, or Ameraucanas for the Gold color. Or, a barred breed, like Barred Plymouth Rock, which looks great among the red, gold, blue, white, solid black colors.

    So, blue, black, splash, red, gold would look nice together, if you want solid colors.

    Do you have a breed in mind? If not try Wyandottes. Here is a site I just found, Pauls Poultry . I do not know anything of the breeder but the photos are pretty.

    I love the Silver Laced Wyandotte! One day when I get more space, I am going to be in a lot of trouble. [​IMG]
