    That's easy. Take a similar breed bantam like an old English that or Dutch bantam that is splash in color having 2 genes for blue and cross it over a sebright. All offspring will b blue with poor to no lacing. Now take the offspring with the most correct conformation of a sebright, slate legs, rosecomb ect and breed them back over a sebright and only keep the blue offspring again with the most correct features of the breed that r blue and cull the blacks. Repeat this 5 generations b4 they r considered pure and have the hen tail gene ect. Now breed the offspring back to each other and keep the splash chicks. After that just pair each splash bird with a black laced bird and 100% of the chicks will come out blue laced from those pairings. Remember to start with the best SQ sebrights u can find with clear defined lacing and no smutty coloring to progress the project faster. Will take a while but good luck. This has already been done with lavender lace in silver sebrights.
