Can any one tell me what I will get when I breed the hen in pic. 1 to the rooster in pic. 2 ? This hen and roo are my sons pet, and I didn't know if thier offspring would be splash or what. I have a hard time understanding the breeding of these birds !
I recently asked a similar question on the Wyandotte thread and this link was shared with me. It takes a bit to figure out how to use it, but there is a drop down that shows english. You can basically plug in the rooster color and the hen color and it will show you the possible outcomes.
I have a handsome blrw cockerel like yours. Such a sweet bird! Thinking about getting some blrw hens for him at some point so I can have more! I'm curious about the bbs thing, too. Is your hen in the first picture considered black? I'm wondering what that 25% black will look like if I cross two blues. Are they solid or do they keep their lacing? Rookie question, but I have to start somewhere!
Have you been able to produce any offspring from these two or are they still too young? Would love to see pics when you do!
Thanks for this thread! I just got my first BLRW pullets this spring and I'm hooked. They're such sweet, calm & docile birds. I have one that looks like your hen, a splash pullet and one that's a shade in between (light blue) . What color would you consider the posted hen, a blue laced or a black laced?
