    You would get some Blue OEGB, and some Black OEGB. Blue OEGB is simply a Black bird with a dilution gene added in. Blue is simply diluted black. You Breed Blue to Blue, and you get Black/Blue/Splash...

    Quote:Thanks I have eggs in the incubator for the first time and can't wait to see what color they come out. I make sure that they are the same breed I just mixed colors this time.

    I used my LF white cochin roo with my black,patridge,blue and splash LF cochin hens. I can;t wait 17 more days.
