    He is [​IMG] and the pullet seems to be a red Columbian(if thats a color)so I think they could have BLR chicks but would like to see what others have to say.

    I don't know if you'll end up with any laced chicks, but odds are that you'll definitely end up with some solid red ones, possibly with blue or black on them. If you do get laced ones, likely the lacing will be very poor. I'd like to know what you end up with.

    She looks very pretty. I would imagine you would get some light red birds with some color showing in the hackles and saddle-area.

    monarc23 - Blue-laced Red Wyandottes are like any other "Andalusian Blue" based bird. They will throw Blue, Splash, and Black-laced Red.

    Blue-laced Red Wyandotte Hen (Blue):

    Blue-laced Red Wyandotte Flock (Splash rooster; splash hen; black hen; 2 blue hens)

    Breeding a "Black-laced Red" x "Splash-laced Red" will throw 100% Blue-laced Red.
     
  9. OMG Chickndaddy , you have some AWESOME looking birds !
