    In simpler visual terms - (not mentioning genetics involved)


    Barred x Mottled - just makes barred Cochins

    Barred x Splash Silkie - Blue barred birds that look similar to Cochins but smaller and with darker skin and a small tophat.

    Barred x Barred Rock - Barred partially fluffy birds
