    Forget the Silver Laced & the Whites.
    Mate the Gold Laced with the BLR, prefered way is with GL male ,this may need AI.
    ½ the resulting chicks will be GL & ½ BLR. Select the largest darkest BLR pullets and mate to a dark GL male.
    Repeat until you have the size you want.

    Only the usual ones with fowl. If you have more than 1 cock bird in the pen they will fight.
