    I'd love to see pics. I just have the laced variety.

    I dont believe they are but you can always make the color, its just silver double laced (think of barnvelder but white instead of brown). You can get there basically by crossing silver laced and silver pencilled. If you want to know more about how to make the color let me know. I posted it before on a similar topic.

    I have been playing with Henk 69 Chicken Calculator and would like to know what you think of this.


    I know it will take years to get to any kind of Standard but do you think this would be a good start.
