    I'm not certain, but I think you'd get a splash BLRW, meaning the blue will not be dark.

    Don't waste your money on them. They're not very good quality and the color is all wrong. Carri is right, a lot of times they may look whitish, but are really very pale splash. If they are saying that this particular bird really is a white laced, and you mated it to a splash blue lace, you probably would not get very good results. The color on these is very washed out, looks entirely gold, the lacing way too broad or entirely lacking, and the roo doesn't look like he's very good form (although the hen looks good). The red should be anywhere between about the same color as a bay horse and dark reddish brown like a RIR. You can do much better than this. [​IMG]

    I'm not even sure what colors you would get with a white laced. I know white masks colors, but I don't know what the genetic results could be because there are many factors involved with BRL lacing.
