    Quote:Yes, I think it's possible to get paints from this breeding. I have a Paint Rooster over a blue hen.

    Yes you can get paint chicks from a paint and blue but they aren't "blue paint". Cam I think he is thinking a whole new color or something.

    I only got the regular paints (and the normal blues, blacks, and whites) from paint to blue breeding. Sigrid has a picture of a blue paint in her book... if I remeber correctly it came from a splash to paint breeding.
