    This is my little bantam wyandotte hen that I bought about a year ago. She is very heavily laced with a light cream color- almost white. So, I'm wondering what genetics might be involved to get this lacing?
    Also, what type Wyandotte roo should I use with her to get some interesting offspring?
    Here she is on her nest a couple months ago.

    I would breed her to a roo that you know what they produce already....and then you can see what colors come out and which colors are more dominant.

    I absolutely love her. I only have 1 wyandotte and have been seriously considering getting more.
