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.

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!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
