    If I wanted to improve my Columbian wyndottes by using a silver laced rooster on them what colors, or patterns, would I expect to see on the first cross?

    Quote:more Silver Laced(not as clearly defined) Wyandotte looking birds..... you see the Columbian Wyandotte genome is the following.. S/S(Silver) Co/Co(Columbian, Restricted) pg+/pg+ ml+/ml+ the Silver Laced Wyandotte genome is the following S/S(silver) Co/Co(Columbian) Pg/Pg(Pattern Gene) Ml/Ml(Melanotic).... so a cross of such a bird would be S/S Co/Co Pg/pg+ Ml/ml+
