In addition to this group, in spring 2013 we were lucky enough to be entrusted to continue the years of good work put into the large fowl breeding group of blues and splash that gave Matt Hanson much success in the poultry showing world.
With such a large collection to select from the splash offspring from 2013 are without doubt the best splash I have bred since I began.

Blue Splash Orpington Chicken Photos

The correct description of Splash is a nearly white bird,having black/and or blue splashes on it as a result of the effect of homozygous blue on a black bird.Breeding the correct shade is very important with blue, and splash is no different as the aim is to eliminate any red from showing through.
Orpingtons are bred as much for their looks and temperament as for their egg laying capabilities. A healthy Splash Orpington hen should lay 120 – 200 eggs per year and achieve a weight of between 7 – 10lbs and a cock bird should achieve a weight of between 10 -12lbs.
