    I know someone on here has dun laced, but I dont know about Violet.... I saw it on feathersite, and It looks similar to Lavender or Blue Laced, does it not?

    I like it though!!

    Another stupid hobby name, all they are is Silver Laced Wyandottes where the black marking have been changed to blue. Not hard to do!!!

    Quote:I know that. I was just wondering if anyone has them here, before I start trying to make my own. I don't want to do what has already been done.

    I have seen 'violet laced' before from our SLW roo on BLR hens, all it is is a blue laced silver. Cross a SLW to splash laced red hens and you should get all blue laced silver, the males will show some red, the females might. Cross those females back to a SLW cock and there you have it. Alot of people ask about them but no one here in the US is making them and selling them.

    I am going to go about it a little differently, or try to, and use a different breed. I guess we shall see after a few generations of working with them, lol.
