    If you cross a polish splash roo (black and white splash) with a polish splash (black and white splash) hen, do you get a splash baby, or can you get white or black?

    I think you get some black, some white and some splash.

    Splash X Splash = 100% (EVERY TIME) splash.

    Wait wait. A black and white chicken is not a splash... Splashes are blue and white. Please clarify the question.

    Splash is the result of pure (homozygous) andalusian blue.

    Yes, black and white isn't splash. Maybe you have mottled?

    Quote:Good to know! I was wrong. sorry.

    I have some splash giant chicks and some 5 month old blacks and whites of giants too, so if I cross the solid colors with the splash ones then I might get black, white, splash and blue?

    If you cross the Black with the splash you will get all Blue.
    White would not be good cross with a splash. If you cross the Splash with the blue you will get Black, splash and Blue
