    I've got a couple of these eggs incubating and just wanted to know what breeds I will get. And also is it possible to get a splash silkie out of this pair? If you have any pics please post :)

    In my limited experience, and limited it is, the white is recessive and so you wouldnt get white chicks unless the blue splash had a white recessive then you could get a white chick that way. Its all to do with the hidden genes.
