    I have a lovely bantam cochin roo in my backyard flock. So far he's been great....not too loud, easy to handle etc. However, I'm not sure of what to call his coloring...is he just grey....or blue....or splash...and if I end up keeping him, what is the likely color of his offspring if I cross him with my black australorps?

    Pretty sure he is splash :) Crossed with black you will get %100 blue ;)

    Thanks everyone! Now that I've got some feedback I think I should research the genetics of breeding the splash color...
