I have decided that Wyandottes are the breed for me. I like their history, their looks, and the temperament of the ones I have had on my "urban hobby homestead"(If that is a real thing) is great. The roo's are protective and hold down the fort well, the hens are less eager to be fully domesticated unlike my Buff's or Columbian Rocks who sit on my lap and peck at my goatee. I have an opportunity to add 3 BLRW's to my flock and would like to see what a "good quality" BLRW looks like. I think the ones I have found are gorgeous and have nice rounded lacing with little to no spotty imperfections compared to my other Wyandottes. I have a beautiful Golden and the last 1/2 inch of her feathers have many imperfections. However her chest and shoulder area is perfect in my eyes! If anyone knows about breeding help correct me if I am wrong on my following statements. Crossing Blue to Blue will yield 50% blue and 50% splash. Crossing Blue to Splash will yield 50% blue 50% splash. Crossing Blue to Black laced red will yield 100% blue. Crossing Blue to Golden will yield 50% blue 25% golden 25% splash. If it is correct that Blue and Black laced red's make 100% blue I will be on the hunt for a few of the black laced reds! When does the sex of the chicken matter with crossing? I haven't found information on that yet. Thanks for any info and any pictures!!!! This picture is of 4 month old BLRW's I will be getting.
