    I have 4 blue laced red wyandotte hens and a BLRW rooster.
    Will the offspring be blue laced red Wyandotte?

    I also have 2 blue Wyandotte hens.
    How will these mix with the rooster?

    I'm trying to plan my housing arrangements.
    (Have 8 hens for eggs)

    Yes, breeding BLRW to BLRW will yield BLRW

    Breeding blue laced red to blue laced red will result in black laced red, blue laced red and splash laced red offspring. Blue does not breed true.
