    If I get splash blue cochin eggs from someone and then get lemon blue cochin eggs from other person and cross them

    do you get splash lemon blue? or just blues with gold leakage..
    if none of the two what would you get?

    Quote:The Splashes and Blues are solid as you know. (Blue diluted extended black) And Lemon Blues are SUPPOSED to be Blue diluted Brown Reds like in Lemon Blue old english games, or the same as Blue Copper. BUT there are some who are simply crossing Blues and Buffs and geting a bird showing blue and buff and calling it lemon blue, but this isnt the true color.
