Breeding blue to blue will give you 50% blue, 25% splash, and 25% black offspring. This is also true with the blue laced red.. However, you will end up with black laced red rather than golden laced (black laced gold). Many blue laced reds are closer to gold than red though so it's entirely possible to get chicks that look almost identical to golden laced.

It's also possible that the color on your chicks will change as they grow. My blue laced red chicks start off with juvenile feathers that are black and gold. Around 6 weeks old, they start getting in their blue and red feathers.

Thanks for the info. Maybe they will change colors since they are only two weeks old. I have about 6 Blue laced reds now and the rest look Gold with black lace.:idunno

I had one that looked like a gold laced but ended up turning a very nice dark blue
