I no longer have these birds so this is rather moot, but I will ask my fellow BYCer's opinions. I was told recently that these birds are Golden-laced Wyandottes and if I bought them as BLR "I got took." Now these birds were bought from McKinney and Govero as day-old chicks. I also had Golden-laced Wyandottes so I know what they look like as well. Below are the two birds in question (obviously the dark pair, not the splash hen in the background with the dirty petticoat). So what are your opinions please? I vote dark Blue-laced Red. I was also told that they weren't sure, but that they thought BLR should breed true with no black or splash birds, so the Black-laced bird I have a picture of wasn't a BLR either. Edited to add: This photo is a scanned copy of a printed photo as I seem to have lost the original. So the color is not exactly portrayed correctly so I can see where the person might be seeing some gold, however I do not see how they are ignoring the blue you can clearly see.
