    Feathersite had them listed as Paint, i guess they're probably considered different because they're colors are not as "blurred" as the splashes. this is my first time hearing of them.

    Yes, the paint silkies are not blue/splash--genotype there is blbl. I believe it is supposed to be based on I plus not sure what else. Only available in Europe, although there is a rumour that some eggs have been imported.

    Cuckoos are available--the trick is finding one with dark skin.

    Those are very pretty. I've never seen them before, much less, heard of them! [​IMG]
