    I was wondering what everyone does with the black chicks that are hatched from blrw. I have a couple and really like them, but not sure how to sell others that I will hatch out.

    You can breed them to either a splash or a blue and still get BLRW.

    Blue X Black = 50% Blue, 50% Black
    Splash X Black = 100% Blue

    but what do I do with the 50% black that I would have from the Blue x Black?

    Sell them as you'd sell the others. That is part of wanting BLRW. There is a blue, a black, or a splash....

    Thanks.

    I just never see anyone selling the black laced red chicks.
