    I want to create the blue laced gold (maybe later the red?) and the blue laced silver?
    I can't find any large breed blue wyandottes (don't think they exist here) so I will have to use another blue breed... would plymouth rock be ok?
    any help would be greatly appreciated!!![​IMG]

    there is one line I know of. Long story short.. I am not keen on them they leave a bit to be desired and were created recently so they still have alot of 'throw back' for the crazy price per egg.

    Several people have listed these on Trademe at various times, coming from various areas of NZ, although it is possible that they all have links to the lines you have concerns about.

    There is an Australian poultry forum with a member who posted a lot about experiments in breeding blue laced wyandottes a while back. Have a look here http://forum.backyardpoultry.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=7986261&start=0&hilit=blue+laced+wyandotte , but I think there are other threads too, explaining how it all works. Here is a page on a bit of the genetics, by the same person http://bluelacedgold.wordpress.com/the-variety-blg/ but it doesn't seem to say how to get started at a quick glance. I read it all about a year ago but can't remember the details at this stage.

    I am in the top of the south Island.

    We have large wyandottes in a few colours (white, GL, SL,columbian and a few less common ones)... as for any othe large heavy breeds in blue/splash.... umm PR's, orpingtons, australorps, and I think that is it.
