My name is Chris, this is my first post here. We keep many different chicken breeds on our farm along with Royal Palm turkeys, ornamental water fowl and a slew of other animals.
Two weeks ago, I purchased a trio of what are supposed to be Blue Laced Wyandottes.
The breeder sold them to us as described but couldn't answer many questions we had, which concerned us, still we took them home. Well, being we are so new to Wyandottes and any terms associated with them, we are unsure if we were sold the right thing. I am attaching photos of the trio. It's a Roo and 2 hens, all hatched this year (again this is what I am told). They seem to have all the characteristics of Wyandottes but I am unsure if they are true Blue laced. Also what is the difference between a Blue Laced and a Blue Laced Red? I also am having a hard time understanding what a "splash" is...and if any of these are splashes.
If anyone can help us here as to what exactly we have, that would be great! They are GORGEOUS birds and we paid quite a bit for them!
