I had Blue, Black and Splash silkies, and asked the same question on another forum, and this is the answer that I got:

Heres the breeding basics for Silkie colours that you could throw off:

Blue X Blue = Blues, Blacks and Splashes
Blue X Splash = Blues and Splashes
Blue X Black = Blues and Blacks
Black X Splash = Blues
Splash X Splash = Splash

Hope this helps!! :D

Way to go Fuzziebutt, you are correct! Here is the breakdown by percentage;

Blue Poultry Genetics:

Blue X Blue = 50% Blue, 25% Black, 25% Splash
Blue X Black = 50% Blue, 50% Black
Blue X Splash = 50% Blue, 50% Splash
Black X Black = 100% Black
Splash X Splash = 100% Splash
Splash X Black = 100% Blue

If you breed a Blue to a pure White the offspring will still equal Blue's and White's but may not be 50/50 since the white is "pure"!!! Could be 60/40 (more white than blue). Hope this helps reinforce Fuzzie's reply!!! Keep us posted on the results.
