    I need help in understanding color genetics.
    I am trying to breed some blue laced Wyandotte’s. I have blue laced red hens and want to put them with a silver laced rooster. I think I understand I can get 50% blue laced hen and 50% silver hens but the roos will be buff laced and not breed true? What would the chicks look like if I bred blue laced hens to silver or blue laced red rooster? What about blue laced hen x blue laced rooster? Is the blue gene similar to the blue in orpingtons where I could get splash?
