    I would love to know if you guys think these two boys are black blue laced red wyandottes?
    They were incubated from my flock, which consists of a lot of BLRW, but I also have americanas, which I thought was what they were.

    The older rooster is 'Slick' - the greatest roo that ever lived. [​IMG] The younger one is 'Mini-Slick' - the older MS gets, the more I wondered.

    What do you think? They both have black nails. [​IMG]

    I believe the first one is a "bleached out" blue laced red Wyandotte. When I say "bleached out" I mean, the sunlight has turned his feathers into a brown color.

    It could also be that his feathers are chocolate or dun instead of the usual blue lacing red.


    The second bird is definitely a blue-laced red Wyandotte.

    Thanks RP!
    [​IMG] That excites the heck outta me!!! Does anyone else have any pictures of their black BLRW's? Especially hens...I have a few of those that I think may be blacks too.

    Slick has been that color since he got his color and the picture doesn't really show his blackness...the sun shine really brings out a mahogany undertone he has. He's the sweetest rooster ever and the best yard dog too!! The girls love him.

    Wow Kellie...he's prettier than mini slick! His coloring is more correct - more red then brassiness and his comb is absolutely beautiful! Both my boys have big bumpy combs.
    Thanks for posting the pictures of him!! I love seeing him. [​IMG] He's got black nails too!

    I'm not certain why they are being called a black blue-laced red Wyandotte. They all appear to be blues laced red to me.
