    Brand new at this. We have blue laced red wyandotte roosters and silver laced wyandotte hens. What will the babies be? Will they be splash laced? I cant wait until April 9 (hatch day)

    You can't get splash laced from that combination. You can only get blue or black laced. The pullet chicks will likely be blue/black laced reds and the cockerel chicks will likely be blue/black golden or yellow laced.

    x2 It is essentially a sex link crossing red roo over silver female with the lacing thrown in too.

    You can play around and see what she means here:

    Place the male as blue laced red, female as silver laced black tail

    They should be very pretty
