    With the success of our first hatch with barnyard mixes, we have decided to try and hatch some BLR Wyandotte chicks. After they’ve hatched they all do not appear the same color. Researching the forums here and other sites, I see they can be splash and black as well. My question is, would the be considered BLR or would they be considered blue splash Wyandotte’s? I’ve only heard of blue laced, red laced and or black laced. We are trying to sell them but do not want to mislead anyone.

    Not everyone understands the b/b/s breeding stuff....you could just point out to them that your birds may be blue, black or splash laced, market them as b/b/s laced red wyandottes or sell each color grouping as the appropriate blue laced, splash laced, black laced...

    Where did you get the eggs to hatch?
    Pics of chicks, please?

    Oh, and...Welcome to BYC! @BandKfarms
    Where in this world are you located?
    Climate, and time of year, is almost always a factor.
    Please add your general geographical location to your profile.
    It's easy to do, (laptop version shown), then it's always there!

    I’m in Greenwell Springs Louisiana.
    Last year we bought a few BLR chicks at a local swap and then found a BLR rooster a few months later.
    We separated our BLRs for about two weeks before we collected the eggs to be incubated. Will update profile later today.
