    Blue Golden is Black Breasted Red (BB Red) + Blue.

    First Cross,
    BB Red male over a Blue female offspring will be Black and Blue

    Second Cross,
    Take your best Blue female and cross her back to her sire and there offspring will be Blue, Black, Blue Golden and BB Red

    Third Cross,
    Breed your best Blue pair from second generation cross and there offspring will be Splash, Blue Golden and BB Red

    Fourth Cross,
    Breed you best Splash male to your best BB Red out of Third Cross and there offspring will be Blue Golden.

    Just remember that Blue will not breed true

    Blue to Blue = 50% Blue, 25% Splash, 25% Black
    Splash to Blue = 50% Blue, 50% Splash
    Splash to Black = 100% Blue
    Splash to Splash = 100% Splash
    Blue to Black = 50% Blue, 50% Black
    Black to Black = 100% Black
