    Buff Laced is basically a gold laced with dominant white, making it that the "lacing" is white, the center of the feather is gold. [​IMG]

    What you'd need to actually create such, for starters, are good quality, non-hatchery Wyandottes. Then, get one with dominant white genes, and one with gold lacing. Work there to get the white into the gold lacing. [​IMG]

    Always remember though - Work on the type first, then the color. There are far too many Wyandottes out there that don't look anything close to the standard, and even the loved Blue Laced Red color variety, though not even accepted yet, can and has been ruined in a lot of birds, both in body and even color quality.

    Although, I believe there are already some buff laced breeders out there. . .

    thanks for your help with this. I think I will look for some good Buff breeders and see if I can get a nice pair. But sounds like some fun to work at creating some myself as well.

    If anyone knows of any nice Buff Lace breeders in Michigan would love to know! I have not found any as of yet.

    I have never heard of anyone having them in the US, not in large fowl anyway.

    That is what i am seeming to find out. Oh well I will keep looking. For now I will concentrate on my speckled Sussex and Ancona's and Black Austrolorps and my Turkeys Just starting to get
    into breeding some. Always just raised chickens for fun but want to try something a little more.

    Yep I'll probably end up breeding some myself before too long along with everything else Im working on. Especially in bantams but maybe LF too.
