    SL roo on BLR hens gives pullets that would be silver laced and some would be silver laced with blue lacing instead of black (called violet laced). And the roosters would be the same but with more gold and red leakage.

    The reversed cross would be sexlinks. Blue and Black laced Red pullets and roos the same as the cross above
