The Blue Double-Laced Barnevelder Project
I started working on this project in 2009 by crossing Blue laced red wyandotte pullets to a pure Barnevelder roo. Many many, many chicks later. I have this second generation blue pullet. She's double laced, dark hackled and single combed There is still a lot of work to do improving type, cleaner lacing and egg color. I can't wait to see what the next generation will look like.
F1 Blue pullets
The eggs are Darker than I expected for the F1 cross
