    We have a new blue wyandotte rooster and a splash hen and we know they will produce BLRW but what about when he is crossed with my buff orps, silver laced wyandotte, and golden laced wyandotte.

    Do you have a blue Wyandotte cockerel or a blue laced red? Is the pullet splash or splash laced red? Crossing those two will give you 50% blue (or blue laced red) and 50% splash (or splash laced red).

    You can see what will result in your other crosses by using the chicken calculator

    He is a blue wyandotte and she is a splash (white and red color).

    Do you have pics? A splash bird shouldn't have any red on it....or is it splash laced? There's a difference between splash and splash laced, same with the blue.

    X 2 - would be helpful if we could see the birds to be able to comment on likely outcomes of breedings.
