    How do I tell if I have a Gold laced wyandotte or blue laced in black?
    Here are the two I'm wondering about. They're in with my splash blue.

    The one in front looks more pencilled, i think it's called? And, I can't tell with the rooster in back, but he strongly resembles my black laced red.

    Gold laced would have a gold feather laced with black.

    I'm leaning towards black laced red, myself. I sure hope so. Is there a way to know for sure or do I need to breed them to my splash and see what happens?

    Hi Does anyone know if this young rooster that I bred a splash?. He came from a BLGW and a GLW.

    They look to be BLR(black phase). The bird in the front does have some feathers with penciling-just a breeding flaw.

    Crossing a blue laced gold with a (black) laced gold can only result in blue laced or black laced. Are you sure your GLW isn't actually a dark BLGW?
