    My guess is the splash version of a blue laced red wyandotte, but honestly the picture is horrible. You can't see heads/combs, or legs, or body shape. A better pic would help confirm. I do see 2 roosters and 1 hen.

    Buff Laced: The buff laced is an even buff color with white around the edge of the feathers.
    • This variation is not recognised by the American Poultry Association.

    Notice the nice, even color of the buff in her feathers, in the roosters the darker mahogany patches are normal. Also, notice the lack of blue/grey streaking in the neck and tail feathers.
    Blue Laced Red: The blue laced red is a mahogany red color with blue around the edge of every feather. The blue laced red has the genetics of the adalusian blue which will result in the colorations of blue, black, and splash from breeding this variation. The base color of mahogany should not change.

    Notice in these splash laced red that the feathers are mahogany, not buff, on both the males and females. Also, notice the blue leaking through on the necks and feather shafts on the tails, just like your birds. If you breed that hen with one of those roosters, you will get all splash. However, if you find yourself a blue or black version you will get blue laced chicks, which will mean that your Wyandottes are blue laced and not buff laced.

    Obviously, I'm still pretty sure they are blue laced reds [​IMG]
