Blue Laced Red Orpingtons?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

A. Is anyone working on creating these?

B. Without crossing to a BLRW, what would be the best way to create this project color?

 

My thoughts...

 

Cross a Gold Laced Cockerel to a Red Hen --> per the chicken genetics calculator the F1 (A) cross will be Black patterned red

 

You would also need to

 

Cross a GL cockerel over a blue hen --> the F1 cross from this will get you Blue laced (B) and black

 

Cross a F1A ( Black patterned Red) from the first cross with a F1B (Blue laced) --> F2 cross will be a huge variety of genotypes and fenotypes... in the mix should be a BLR or an incomplete BLR.  This would result in hatching out hundreds of chicks...as the BLR looks like it would be around a 1% hatch rate

 

 

Breed the best BLR F2 birds together for F3 and so on and so on....

 

Do you think this would work? Or better ideas?

I would cross a Blue Laced Gold over a Red, breed the offspring from that cross together, and then select the F2 chicks for color and lacing quality.
