    Quote:K...a bit OT, but I know in breeding blues you get blks & splash too...so can you breed splash & ONLY splash? Or will you get blacks & blues too?

    Yes, you can breed Splash to Splash and get Splash but after a few generations you will end up with nearly White and not much splash so you will have to add blue back in to the splash coloring sharp.
    EXAMPLE: see the second silkie in this pic. Nearly no splash just mostly in tail feathers.

    Oh my gosh, when I saw that first splash picture, I thought, oh how cute I'd sure like one! SO IT'S TRUE ABOUT THEIR EVIL POWERS! I've never wanted a Silkie before, ever. Bamachicken is One of Them!
