    Which breeds have a splash variety? Wht's it called? BBS? Blue/Black/Splash? Or is there a page somewhere that I'm missing and should have already seen?

    Marans
    Blue Andalusians

    That's all I can think of.

    Any breed that has blue, also has splash. However, splash is not RECOGNISED in all those breeds.

    Okay. So I can add Silkies to the list of breeds that have Splash since I read your sig.

    I appreciate your answer. Thanks. My job ... if I chose to accept it ... is to figure out which breeds have blue. Then I'll know which ones have splash. Okay. Oh, and it looks like I need to stop asking stupid questions.

    Back to the drawing board.

    I love splash! Splash is a gateway to out crossing genes. Tinker around with it and you'll see. My secret to you [​IMG]

    I wish the splash was a recognized variety in more breeds. What a challenge it would be to get the perfect proportion of blue, black and white feathers [​IMG]
