Though some maybe interested in some up dates of my season hatch with the BLR Wyandottes.
We haven't hatched many, but we have some very good birds amongst them, type is great & colour is looking better then their parents which is great news.
So far I have managed to get a picture of one of our oldest pullets.

I really don't like photographing them as the picture makes the colour look a lot lighter then it actually is, this pullet is very dark & her lacing is crisp, not that you can tell here. You can see a lighter version in the background behind her, this is her sister.

Lacy i like her depth of colour, particularly against the soft blue lacing, and she has a nice round front on her, its good you are seeing progress .

I know what you mean. It's very hard to get a good photo. I love the colour you are getting. I can see that it's more mahogany than the one behind. You must be very pleased with it. :-D

She's too young to judge, Lacy. So far so good. Like you, I think she may type up very nicely, but is still leggy and lots of development yet to come. It's an encouraging start though especially since BLR have struggled with type. You are on the right track I think.

There's something about the head that is different. Is the beak a little hooked or is it the colour? Also, photos are terrible for colour. Check her eye colour. Is it looking like a bay colour? Not too light? I can't tell from pictures on here. I spent some time looking at eyes this morning and I need to move on a few. I found one very strange set of pale blue eyes on a wyandotte. It's the first I've ever seen. Very bizarre.

This is our Splash Laced Red cock bird that Matt gave to us, he is probably the best typed Wyandotte rooster I have ever seen. He is the father of the above pullet, if they turn out anything like him I will be over the moon.

Lacy, were those two out of females from my line? I actually cant remember if you took any when you were here.

Just the head and the red both look familiar.

See that line of new feathers running down her chest, they will be the adult colours. They look really good colour and lacing wise.

Cant wait to compare notes in a few months.

No Raf, we didn't take any of yours, they are from Matts line, the Splash rooster pictured & a black laced hen.
We have 2 or 3 nicely coloured pullets like her, though the other 2 are younger, her brother of the same hatch is also nice & dark like her.

We also have another couple of younger cockerels looking promising.

I will have to set them up in the show pens & get my good camera out & see if we can get a decent photo that better shows off the depth of red, the iPad seems to make it look lighter.

As C07 and I agreed, don't rush her.

The few newer feathers on her back and the line of them down the front herald the dark colour she will have.

Looks great.

This is probably the best place for this for now.

The difference between White (Dominant White) and Splash (Double Blue).

Image

You can see that at present the red is similar, but the lacing is quite rusty in the White Laced.

This is what I was referring to about the adult feather line;

This one has a few feathers coming through

Image

This one has about 3 lines of feathers. You can see the juvenile feathers still in the middle of the breast.

So far I like the Splash Laced Best. Crisp.

yes the blue in the white looks good, but the red in the white not so much I think?

but still when you get the red darker and any red (leakage) out of the white I think it may be a different story.

That is the hope. Dom white and red interact different to black.
