    How do I get the dark rich mahogany color and deep blue? I have blrws with yellow in them so do they all need replaced?

    The problem is that blue laced red were produced from golden laced wyandottes. Golden laced wyandottes do not carry a gene called mahogany which would cause the mahogany color; like that found in rhode island reds. I convinced a breeder to out cross to rhode island red to produce the mahogany color you are wanting. It worked, after a few years he had what you are wanting. blue laced dark red wyandottes.
