Hi! I have kept a backyard flock for years, though we've lived in the suburbs so I couldn't have a rooster. My husband and I are planning to move to a place with some land in 2012 - which to me, means ROOSTER(s)! I have a couple of Ameraucana hens and would like to get more. I have no intention to show or sell; we will eat the eggs, and if we have chicks, they can either stay on the farm, go to live with one of the many farmers I know, or we can eat extra cockerels. To be overrun with chickens - oh, what a problem to have! Hahaha! I am considering what kind of rooster to get. I really like the look of Wyandottes' lacing, and their gentle temperament. In your experience, is there any combination of laced Wyandotte over Ameraucanas that might result in laced chicks? I don't know much about the lacing gene. I have no intention of trying to get a new color approved by the APA or anything fancy like that, just considering a fun backyard project I could tinker with for the next decade or so.
