Flash has a blue red laced chest and legs. After seeingMichelle's hen "Morgan" on her blog, I just have to try to get some more colors. I was able to find some Splash Blue Laced Red Wyandotte hens! And I have 2 solid blue Wyandotte pullets coming from a friend. So I will experiment with making Blue Laced Red Easter Egg pullets and hoping for a Morgan or two.... the new hens will go in the same pen as my EE layers.......so no added work. I get blue eggs, so any light brown/brown eggs will be from the BLRW and Blue hens. ......its the unknown that makes it interesting..their eggs set under my Silkies and anticipate "what will I get ?"
I did some research A Splash BLRW roo on solid blue hens will not give me any laced chicks. So the 2 blue hens are in with Flash2 Perhaps I will get a blue gold EE hen like Michelle's "Morgan"?

November 2011 I retired, sold my Shetland flock and moved to town.I live on the edge of Fergus Falls, pop 13,000. Its has been a great choice. My mother, sister, her family and my granddaughter live here. I have a garden shed that I converted into a chicken coop. Its also houses my granddaughter's pet Rabbit. My backyard will be flowers and shrubs.
