    True lacing, no. It's one of those colors debated (but I'm sure are) not possible.


    You can get a Birchen with excess chest color in the form of lacing, but not a true white laced black.

    Quote:I believe, like with the birchen, that will be silver laced, not white laced. There is a difference, genetically and visually.

    A black bird with nice white lacing is one of those mythical creatures like dragons or a good paying job in this economy, we have all heard they exist but no one has ever really seen one...

    That is a birchen with excess color on the chest. [​IMG] Which is what I mentioned earlier. I'd love to see a truly laced (as in Ml/Ml and Pg/Pg on a partridge or crowwing based bird) bird though, especially a hen! [​IMG]
