    Had no idea this topic was already covered, I'm still a bit confused on the best way to acheive the color. I already have very good laced blue and splash cochins if that helps any. I saw suggestions for red cochins and gold laced?? I've seen good type reds in the country but never golden laced.

    Thanks,
    Shari

    I will tell you how to make blue laced gold. Take a GL cock and mate him to splash or blue hens. Keep the blue daughters (most will be solid with some gold leaking through) from that and mate them back to a GL. The 2nd generation should give birds with primitive lacing. Keep the best blue pullets from that mating and mate back to GL. By the 3rd generation you should have better lacing, more like hatchery style lacing (if you used good gold laced birds). Once again keep the best blue laced girls and mate back to GL. By the 4th generation you should have something close to what you want as far as blue laced gold goes. As far as making BLR you would have to breed in good red birds (think show style RIR). I dont know what to do as far as all that goes, PM tim or Krys.

    I have no idea where to get any real good quality GL. I have a pair of GL but in no way are they good quality.
