    100% blue split to mottle. If you breed the offspring together you'll get blues, blacks, splash; some of each will be mottled

    pokey, what type/breed of birds are you working with?? Will have some mottled cockerels soon enough to go.. they will be from our mottled orp project birds, but they are really looking good so far..

    100% Blue Mottled. They'll look like a normal Mottled but... blue.

    Quote:No, they won't, mottle is recessive.
