    Blue is not a pure color. It is a cross between Splash and Black. You should wind up with half of them black and half of them blue.

    OK,
    If you would cross a Blue Cochin with a Light Brahma (Columbian) you should get;
    F1 Blue -- Males and Females and F1 Black -- Males and Females.

    If you would cross the F1 Blue Male back to his Dam you should get;
    F2 Blue -- Males and Females, F2 Black -- Males and Females, F2 Blue Columbian -- Males and Females, and F2 (Black) Columbian -- Males and Females.


    *(Note - F1 Represents First Generation and F2 Represents Second Generation )*
