    My husband bought 26 chicks a few months ago and was told they are pure bred blue laced red wyandotts. She said that they are out of different lines but still pure. I have mixed fillings about them being pures. What do ya'll think?[​IMG]

    Looks pure to me. The parents were blue laced red, so you get 50% blue laced, 25% black laced, and 25% splash laced, i believe from what I have seen.

    Blue does not breed true. Same for blue laced reds.

    blue laced red x black laced red = 50% blue laced red, 50% black laced red
    blue laced red x blue laced red = 50% blue laced red, 25% black laced red, 25% splash laced red
    blue laced red x splash laced red = 50% blue laced red, 50% splash laced red

    splash laced red x black laced red = 100% blue laced red
    splash laced red x splash laced red = 100% splash laced red

    black laced red x black laced red = 100% black laced red

    The depth of the blue coloring ranges from light to very dark, almost black. Your birds do look to be pure blue laced reds.

    All are Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, but some are black or splash laced instead of blue.
