    Is this double lacing? Look at her tail end...it's not like any of the other Wyandottes we have. Is this a "good" thing or not desired? She is about 6-7 months old.

    Kind of hard to be sure from this photo, some appear to be double laced, some closer to partridge. Single, double, and multiple(partridge) lacing are pretty close genetically. I would hazard a guess that she is lacking a double dose of the columbian gene, that is required for single lacing, not required for the other two. All in all, not necessarily a good thing.

    Quote:Thanks for the info [​IMG] . It does remind me of a partridge pattern, don't know why I didn't notice before. I'll see if I can get a closer photo too.
