    Here is Esmeralda, my KW hen. Out of all the chicks she has ever hatched, none have ever had lacing. Some have been blue, but no lacing. This is the roo I have had with her for years. I plan on switching out roos soon to the second pictured roo. Any chance I will get lacing? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Just giving a bump up to see if a genetics expert will chime in here to get you an answer.

    By the way what breeds are those two roosters?
