    OK, Maxx, then add to my list .... Bearded Splash Silkie.
    It doesn't have the Non-Bearded Splash listed though.

    Ok, here we go.
    We have Color and we have Variety.
    Two different things.
    Nonbeard Silkies are a variety and accepted.
    Than you have White, Black, Blue, Splash, Gray, Buff, and Partridge for color.
    These colors are accepted.
    Everything else is a AOV.

    There are 14 recognised varieties of silkies: bearded and non-bearded in white, black, blue, splash, partridge, grey & buff. Splash (both bearded and non-bearded) have been recognised for MANY years. (2000? 2001?)
