    i am gonna show some golden sebrights and the rooster is a little to heavily laced but one of the hens has the perfect amount of lacing. could i breed that hen to the rooster and then if some of the chicks come out with good lacing could i breed the chicks that have good lacing together and the chicks from them would be show quality? (the only thing that makes the adults that i have now not show quality is the lacing.) i have no idea what im doing someone please help.

    How wide is the lacing? Is it just a bit thick, or Really thick?

    oh, wow, that's pretty thick. If the hen is ok with lcing, then sure, breed them! You can breed him with a hen with very thin lacing to get good lacing too [​IMG]
