    Splash is a color that can be produced when breeding blue birds together. It is mostly white with some light grey/blue or dark grey/blue flecks.

    Lacing is a term given to feathers. It means the outer portion of the feather has a different color than the inner portion, blue laced red is a blue feather with red surrounding it on the outside edges.
