    I have about 18 bantam wyandottes. 1 trio partridge, 1 pair golden laced, 1 pair buff laced(hens), 1 blue laced red hen, 1 pair white, 1 trio of black, 1 black rooster.

    All of them are in smaller pens in trios or pairs. I would like to have fewer but larger pens. The only way for me too do that is too not have them separated. What are ways I can have them together and still get pure colours? Example: black and whites together, golden laced, buff laced and blue laced together? And what about the partridge, can they be put with anything else and still produce pure colours? Any feedback or ideas on the possibilities are greatly appreciated.

    You won't get any pure colors if you mix any of those colors together.

    assuming the buff laced hens are the splash variety of blrw they can go with the blrw hen wherever she goes

    Could I see a picture of you blrw and the buff? I am trying to figure out what color mine is. I was told she is a Blue lace red wyandotte bantam

    That bird is a Buff.
    No blue no red and no lacing.
