You have a *light type Blue Laced Red Wyandotte.

*When you breed two Blue birds, you get 1/3 "true blue" offspring (a slaty grey color), 1/3 black (or nearly black) offspring, and 1/3 "splash" or "light" offspring (this is the kind your hen is). She is still pure BLRWyandotte, she just carries two copies of the Blue gene rather than one.

200 something birds. 8 species. ♥ Norman ♥ Norma ♥ Misha ♥ and ♥ Taylor ♥ are my babies.

I agree with the above; she's a beautiful bird. :o)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Splash of a blue laced red wyandotte.

Wishlist

 

I really want aWhite  Sebastopol that is young and nearby! Our male died two days after we bought him. I would really want a female though because the Sebbie was to be a companion for my duck, and now we think it's a drake.

Splash Blue Laced Red Wyandotte.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
