    I bought a bunch of wyandotte bantam chicks from someone on Craigslist. There are 2 roosters among them that I would like some opinions on. Both started out a kind of splash color with some splotches slightly darker. Recently the spots have turned darker, some looking black. I would like opinions on whether I could breed these with a particular hen to get something interesting, or should I just get rid of them? In bantam wyandotte hens I have 2 whites, a black, and a silver laced that they might mix with. Sorry the pictures aren't super, and the birds are hot.

    If you breed black to splash, you get 100% blue.

    your others would just be a mash of the 2 colorings.
