Blue Laced Red Wyandottes X Gold Laced Wyandottes

post #1 of 7

I want to breed both BLRW's and the GLW's 

I want to raise the BLRW's and the GLW's. Will breeding them together mess up the coloring? 

your will they need to be separated

I haven't raised Wyandottes yet but my guess is if you mix the different colored Wyandottes, the offspring would most likely not be colored the same as the parents. If you want the offspring to maintain the same colors, you'd have to keep them separate. Maybe another greeter with breeding experience will jump in here and clarify.

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! I'm afraid I too have not raised Wyandottes and colour genetics are really not my strong point at a the best of times! There are many Wyandotte threads and I'm sure if you type that into the search box above they will come up.

Wishing you the very best of luck in your search for answers. Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat frow.gif

I would think breeding the two colors together could cause a lot of mismarked birds that  wouldn't fit the standard of perfection. But if you just want to play around for your own flock, that's up to you.

Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

I have no idea if the colors will mix or not but it sounds like a fun experiment to hypothesize about!:thumbsup Here is a great link to check out concerning genetics and breeding.
