    Hi everyone!

    I just recently bought my very first chickens. After tons of research, I decided to go with the wyandotte breed. just over a month ago i ended up purchasing three 2 month old blue laced red wyandotte pullets and one gold laced wyandotte pullet. I believe that my gold laced pullet is now actually a rooster.

    So my question is;

    If I end up eventually crossing my glw roo over my blrw hens, what will I get? I tried the color charts and they confuse the heck out of me. I can post pics if wanted.

    Thanks all! No answer yet on the breeding forum but I've been googling like crazy and one thread I found said gold laced over splash (which I've now been educated that I have) should give me 100% blue laced gold which would be awesome!
