    So last year I ordered some eBay eggs, they were labeled as blue laced buff brahma I believe. Either way, they don't look anything like the ones they had pictured, but honestly I like these better!

    Any ideas on what I could cross them with to try and keep the color? Or what was crossed to make them?

    Same color/pattern genes as Buff Brahmas, but with the Blue/Black/Splash dilute. The hen is Blue Buff. The roosters are Splash Buff.
