    I am wanting to deliberately breed my SLRW roo to a couple different hens this spring for the purpose of getting interesting colors/patternings.
    I am asking anyone who KNOWS breed coloration genetics to PLEASE reply.

    This is my SLRW roo:

    I will edit later to add the pic of the particular Barred Rock hen that I would like to breed. I will also attempt to get a better picture of each buff EE hen.

    That's OK Katy,
    I thought the OP meant Silver Laced Red Wyandotte.

    I thought exactly the same thing -- Silver Laced Red Wyandottes [​IMG]


    Did not even cross my small mind that it might be Splash Laced [​IMG]

    I made a comment on a thread a few days back about the use of abbreviations leading to some confussion, at least on my part. Apparently my point of view was not shared by many, and at least one moderator. This one had me scratching my head too, but then again, I may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer.
