    They look gold laced rather than red with lacing.

    If your looking for BLR's look at sterlingcenterfarm.com
    I really like the looks of these. I'm not sure if this is what your looking for or not.

    If you run a good red rooster with them the gold will dilute the red color. I'd advise against it if your trying to get good blrw. And start with good birds at first and dont cross them with any gold. I've got chicks brooding now from sue and cant wait to see how good they turn out.

    Yep. You don't want to start with gold.

    Quote:i agree, it would take a few years to improve those hens.....I would start with better looking ones type and color. Did you say you just got some from Sue? i would start with those, do you have pictures?

    I have a single comb black laced red wyandotte. I'll have to get a pic of him. He is from Sue's stock.

    I've got five pullets from Sue coming tomorrow and fifteen straight run chicks coming from the Paul family at the end of May. I desperatly want some stock from the Foleys AKA Turbos, but will have to wait til fall unless I get an incubator and the Mrs. posts another offer like the one today!

    I'm certainly no expert, but I have done a TON of research. Definitely would not involve the gold. You'll probably spend more time and money trying to get rid of it than you would imagine.

    Good luck, I can't wait to get styarted with this project myself!

    I keep having to remind myself that the post office is not an incubator with a phone. [​IMG]
