    So like many of you I have a new found chicken addition! :)

    I went to a local lady today to drop off some of my unwanted Roo's and ended up buying two more pullets. Duh! One is a SLW and the other was bought/hatched as a BLRW. Theres one problem...this pullet is all blue with some random white, no red. What could she be?

    Thanks!

    My only other Solution is that the Hatchery BLRW Are carring the silver gene, so it popped up in this bird [​IMG] You have a Blue laced Silver Wyandotte
