    Just wondering what they look like. I can't seem to find a pic anywhere. These would be splash from blue mottled breeding. Thanks

    Cackle Hatcheries has a Bantam Splash Cochin picture in their catalog.

    It would basically look like a splash, if you look close you'll see mottling.

    Thats what I figured but I didn't know how evident the mottling would be. Does no one have a picture?

    Thanks [​IMG] but those are just blue mottled right? I'm looking for splash mottled. Do they just look like regular splash?

    Don't know if the mix exists, id think its one or the other, looks like blue and black mottles in the auctions

    Well anytime you breed blue and blue you should get 1/4 splash birds. Maybe mottled cochin breeders only breed blue to black? [​IMG] I doubt it but maybe.

    Quote:Black x blue produces 50% black, 50% blue. Blue x blue produces 25% black, 50% blue, 25% splash.

    splash and mottled are two different looks of plumage, there not the same
