I didn't think there were different colours of splash? I thought a black bird with one blue gene would be blue and two blue genes would be splash which lots mostly white with some black feathers sprinkled throughout. I would have said the white lavender splash above was a grey/silver partridge and the black and brown one partridge, but i'm in Australia so maybe colours are labelled differently over here?

Your birds are gorgeous, but I do not see any splash in your photos. Brown one almost looks partridge, but she is likely mixed colors.
Grey/white one looks to be a grey or light silver partridge.😊

You are correct @Willawong Hill, splash is splash and is part of BBS color genetics. Also in the US.

This is a splash:

Thats interesting. I was told by a silkie show owner that splash simply meant there was a "splash" of another colour in an otherwise pure coloured bird. My larger white one has a "splash" of blue on the backside of her head, so she wasn't show quality and therefore was told she was a white with splash.
But thank you for the information! Its really interesting to always be learning.
