Skittles is one of my project birds. He/she (I'm thinking he) is half Ameraucana and half Andalusian. Judging from the pictures I would say he is carrying the pattern gene required for true lacing. If you bred him to a black female from a blue mating it would be interesting to see how the chicks turned out.  ;)

I'm thinking a lot of folks would like to see how that turns out. :)

No problem Hannah... He is a pure Ameraucana. I still think he's pretty cool. The splash pattern on him looks awesome!  :)

Clif, I haven't kept any of the splash or blacks long enough to tell as I am just working with the blues for now.
