    I always thought it was pronounced the way it is spelled as it has 2 words in it. Wyan & dot. [​IMG]
    Wyan met dot and became Wyandotte....sort of like Bradgelina, Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie. [​IMG]

    Hi. I posted a humorous shot of these guys over at the online poultry show, so I thought I'd introduce my 5 1/2 month old BLRW pair more formally. Unfortunately my rooster, Ian, was having none of that formality stuff. I seem to have gotten the class clown:

    Anyway, Sylvia, looking proper and dignified

    [​IMG]

    And a couple of shots to give an idea of Ian's size and color; I think he's got nicely saturated colors for a splash roo:

    I got them from Rainwolf when they didn't fit in with her flock; I've loved Wyandottes my whole life, and here they are!

    one of our 2 SLW - First time having this breed and 4 months in i'm thinking "what the hell did i do?!? [​IMG]"> we have mostly silkies and only one "real" chicken [​IMG] - RIR until this new batch of foster chicks for broody Miesha.

    My SLW young ladies are pushy , bratty , rude chickens.... but hey we love em anyway [​IMG]

    Quote:Yes, when we say blue, we mean blue laced red, just don't say all the words.
    Splash is a lighter shade of the variety, but still blue laced red.
    I'd be surprized if you have a "black laced" bird. It will probably turn out to be a dark blue laced red.

    Boy do I feel dumb [​IMG] Sorry!! I am just getting started with chickens and totally clueless [​IMG]

    Thanks SO much for the help and clarification. [​IMG]

    You'll be talking like a pro sooner than you think!
    We all had to start at the beginning, you'll be speaking like the rest of us soon![​IMG]

    I really appreciate the support. I am just a back yard flock owner but would love to have a farm and breed/show some day. I guess everyone has to start some where. I don't know HOW I am going to decide who to keep from these 5 puff balls. Suggestions for best quality/preferred look perhaps?
