    What variety of chicks would hatch if I mated my paint roo to my blue hen?

    Most likely blue splash. I'm not very familiar with color genetics but that's my guess. Beautiful color I had a flock of blue splashes for a few years.

    No. Both parents would need to have blue for splash offspring. Splash is two copies of the blue gene. Paint X blue will give paint, blue paint, black and blue offspring.
