    If I had a dun laced bantam and I bred her to a:

    solid black roo =

    golden laced roo =

    silver laced =

    blue laced red =

    What would I get in each case?

    Silver Laced x Dun Laced = 50/50 silver or dun laced.


    Gold Laced gets you sexlinked (or the other way around) birds, half dun and half normal black lacing.


    Blue Laced Red - don't even go there. [​IMG]


    Solid Black - gets you dun/choc colored birds with some golden or silver coloration on them. They'll be neat looking, but also mutt-looking.

    Katy, Paul's Poultry, Foley's, and several other people from the Wyandotte thread would be my advise.

    Heather- get ahold of Bruce Bickle from Canada.... he comes to a lot of the WA shows (Monroe, Chehalis, etc).... he has good silver laced bantams. Again, you're always fighting the wings,.. but his are pretty darn nice.

    you could breed to a standard silver laced. it is the hen that determines bantam or LF. so all chicks would be bantam but you might have to AI.
