Silver Laced rooster over a splash Blue Laced Red hen - first gen of "Violet Laced" Wyandotte
I have a few other first generation that are 3 months now but they got mixed up in the brooder with my BLRW and now not sure who is who until these feather out - oops
Thank you. I fell in love with the color when I saw it. Currently I have only found the variety in England and Australia. I will open the group with luck in Spring 2016.
My F2s are just starting to feather out now. They are coming out about 50/50 silver lace and lavender lace. This is my first roo in the color and my favorite ....too early to see any leakage but crossing fingers!
I have a question...
I hope someone might know.
What can I breed a Blue Laced Silver rooster to, to produce more Blue Laced Silver chicks????
A blue laced silver male over standard silver laced females should produce chick's roughly evenly split between blue laced and black laced silvers of both sexes. Or
A blue laced silver male over blue laced red hens will produce silver based pullets roughly 50% should be blue edged , 25% your standard black edged (silver laced) and 25% splash edged which will likely look mostly like a white bird. The males from this cross will be split gold/silver, looking more like a silver with brassy yellow in the saddle and hackle feathers as they mature, with the same blue/black/splash ratio as the pullets. Or
A blue laced silver male over gold laced hens will also produce silver based pullets, roughly 50% will be blue trimmed..
Thanks so much for the response.
I have a Gold laced, a Silver laced and 2 Blue laced red hens.
So I could get a percentage of Blue laced silvers out of all of them?
