    What colors do you cross in order to get dun lace? And does the color work like blue and have 3 different color that come out of it?

    Yes the Dun gene works the same as the blue gene. Dun x Dun gives you approx. 50% Dun, 25 % Khaki(splash), 25% Black.

    You will have to cross into a Dun colored bird to get that color into whatever variety you want.

    from them, keep a black rooster and a dun hen... cross them, and hope you get some dun laced birds... keep them, and breed them to the parents, or if you get a pair out of them, breed them to eachother...
