    Its hard to see from the distance in the picture. Can you post larger images? Should look like the blue laced reds, only with black.

    I agree it's very hard to see with the small pictures, but it really doesn't look like it.

    He doesn't look like a laced. Not sure whats up with his pattern.

    he does look like a black blr - his lacing just isn't great. [​IMG]

    That comb looks cupped to me. Could he be a Buttercup?

    His lacing leaves a lot to be desired. If you are wanting to start breeding BLRWs I wouldn't use him because of his lacing and the brassiness in his hackles.

    I think he looks really cool! Maybe his conformation isn't good for a BLRW but I doubt the hens care about that! [​IMG]
