    Hi
    We dont have BLR Wyandottes in Australia and am interested in their history. I believe they originate in the UK and then move to the US. Dose anybody have any info on where they come from, make up genetics etc.
    Thanks TL

    The blue laced red colour is, I believe, homozygous eb, Co, Pg-Ml, Mh & heterozygous Bl/bl+ . [​IMG]

    I know on another forum there is a person in AUS working on BLR wyandottes, they have crossed blue wyandottes with gold laced to get blue laced gold, then they crossed in RIR to get the mahogany for the red, the last I heard they were starting to look pretty good.
