    This pair of Bantams was sold to my daughter as Blue Laced Red Wyandottes but I think they are Buff Laced Red Wyadottes even though they have blue in the tail, am I right?? [​IMG]

    You do know that the color Blue does not breed true? you will get Blue Laced, Splash and Golden Laced. Yours looks like a Splash pullet and a Blue Laced Rooster.

    Quote:That could be a Splash Rooster, I know the hen is. But you know out of 200 or so BLRW chicks we have hatched, I have never hatched out a Splash Rooster lots of pullets. That's kinda strange.

    That is strange, but they do exist. I've had a few myself. Do you think your splash roos might have some genetic defect that might make them fail to develop embryos? Maybe you could try adding some fresh genes to your stock? I don't know really.... Well, at any rate, your words give me hope 'cause I just hatched a splash two days ago I'm really hoping is a girl.

    So if both of your Bantams are Splash, then all of the Off Spring (there chicks) will be Splash too.
