    Hello there! I recently saw a picture of an interesting bird on mypetchicken.com and I was wondering if this particular plumage is splash or just leakage. What would I need to cross to get a bird that looks like this?

    That is a splash. You need to breed two blues together to get a splash.

    Blue/Black/Splash (BBS)
    Blue x Blue = 50% Blue, 25% Black, 25% Splash
    Blue x Splash = 50% Blue, 50% Splash
    Blue x Black = 50% Blue, 50% Black
    Black x Splash = 100% Blue
    Black x Black = 100% Black
    Splash x Splash = 100% Splash
    NOTES - - Black can NEVER parent a Splash Bird, and Splash can NEVER parent a Black Bird.
