    The chicken color calculator says you'd get about half blue-laced and half solid black.

    Quote:By Blue Laced do you mean Blue with dark lacing, Blue laced Red ? or Blue Silver laced ?

    If blue with dark lacing, then you will get what Freeholder said.

    If what you mean is Blue Laced Red and it is the actual blue phase, then you will get pullets that are Silver laced and Blue Silver laced and they will be pure for the silver genes, the roosters will have more of the Silver laced pattern ( though like the hens, hald will be blue laced) but they will be spilt for both silver and gold genes and that will give them a yellowish sheen on the silver.
