Hello All! 


Creating this post to learn some more about crossing breeds of chickens. 


I have a chance to pick up a gorgeous Marion Blue Rooster. I am currently trying to decide to wait out for a blue Laced Roo or go with him. I am increasing hearing that Wyandottes are not as friendly and aren't as good layers as some other hens and have been thinking about the Blue Delaware's.


I currently have in my coop for hens: 

Silver Laced Wyandotte 

Silver Dorking 

Rhode island red

Easter Egger. 


When crossing with a Blue Marion Roo what can i expect? I am mainly interested in what he will create with laced Wyandottes.

If his blue will by chance pass onto chicks. ( I know Blue doesn't always breed true) 


Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated on the cross or the roosters themselves.
