    I have a 3 year old IB hen, a 2 year old IB (male), 1 blackshoulder hen, and 1 emerald green spaulding pied. Who should I match with whom and what will I get? Thanks for your recommendations.

    all chicks will look blue no mater how you pr them. if with the spalding all chicks will be smaller % spalding.

    Which one do you want.

    Thanks, that is what I hoped. The BS and IB have been paired up for a year. Now that I have a hen IB for the male IB will I have trouble when I split the pied and BS from the IBs?
