    I'm pretty sure this has been discussed before but I can't find it. So, what crosses with what to get blue laced red? I love the color but would like it in OEGBs, is it possible?

    ETA: Would blue over gold laced work? or buff laced?

    Blue over gold laced would make blue laced gold birds in a few generations. It might be a fun project but be sure to start out with birds that have good type first. To get blue laced red, you need the mahogany gene in there to change the gold to red

    I don't right now but I was going to order some from Purely Poultry. Has anyone ordered from them? What quality birds do they have?
