    Hi there!

    Does anyone know what color of chicks one gets from a Silver laced wyandotte roo and a gold laced wyandotte hen?

    Or where I can find that information?

    Thanks!

    I think this was posted the other day. The pullets will be mostly silver laced with alittle gold showing. The males will be bad silver laced with brassy hackle, saddle, wingbow, and in some other areas.

    I don't know about wyandottes..but I've heard that when silver sebrights are crossed with gold sebrights that the offspring are sex-links.
    Maybe wyandottes are the same? I don't know.

    Sex linking is the other way around, Gold male over Silver female.
    Your mating will give Silver pullets (which may not be a clean silver, & be dirty looking due to Autosomal Red), and the cockerels will be Silver/Gold splits.
