    So I have decided to get a Splash laced red Wyandotte roo to cross on my silver laced wyandotte pullets, this cross should result in sexlinked chicks with the pullets being Blue laced red and the roos being I belive Blue laced Gold/Silver. I should have eggs from these in the spring and I would like to know how many of you all would be interested.

    UPDATE Pic of my new roo on page 2.

    Thanks

    I'd take some. I also have (I think) all 3 colors of BLRW roo- just in case you want another one [​IMG]

    Interesting. How'd you figure that out about the sex-link?

    I already figured they would be some kind of sexlink and then I used the color calculator and posted a thread about it, and blackdotte told me that they would be sexlinks and gave me a color decription, https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=266496 but since I should be using a Splash Laced Red instead of a Blue laced Red, ( I planning on picking him up tuesday), I shouldn't get any Black laced chicks, only blue laced. I'm really excited to see the actual chicks. I'll let you know when I start selling eggs.
