    What would be the best breeding match for these?

    I would breed them together. The offspring should be blr's with 50% blue and 50% black

    A couple questions:

    1. What did you breed in order to get the "F1 BLR" hens?

    2. Why did you choose to breed them to a mille fleur rooster if you're shooting for BLR? (because all the offspring from this breeding will be split to mottled and not laced)

    Maybe I missed something somewhere...

    partridge cochin and splash blr wyandotte to get f1. the mille fleur will still give the laced offspring. they will be split to mottled but you shouldnt see it until later then the mottleds could be culled or kept for another project. he also has the red gene where the gold laced and buff columbian will have the gold gene and will require more culling.
