    I have just purchased this beautiful gold laced Polish hen who has been part of a breeding project to introduce the gold lacing to Polish in NZ since we do not have the array of colours people do over seas. Our basic colours are wc black, wc blue, white and just starting to get cuckoo and partridge. So was wondering what colour I would put this hen too to help develop her lacing? Same question would be for how to develop a silver laced Polish. Would you use a sebright to a dominant white, or recessive white Polish or to a black Polish? As well as how to develop a buff laced Polish? [​IMG]

    I believe Its a gold laced, mine looked just like this when she was younger. The lacing grew in gradually. Mine even had the solid black crest like this. Here she is before and now. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yeah, I was a little upset when she feathered out and was not laced. But slowly she became more laced instead of spangled. We are still waiting for her tail feathers to become laced.

    Sorry for the delay in replying. Yes she is still a young girl and will hopefully get more lacjng. I think she is only 2nd of 3rd generation, so still have a lot to work on to get her lacing. But would I cross her to a black Polish or back to another gold laced sebright to get more lacing?
