Not sure if you are looking for feedback. I realise its a very appealing and attractive colour, but if breeders are wanting to help the breed, they need to get substance back into their birds. Personally I wouldn't breed with either rooster unless your just wanting to breed some pretty chooks (in which case please disregard me comments). But if your wanting to breed to the Wyandotte standard or exhibit them at shows then I am happy to give advice if you like. Sorry if I come across a bit harsh, I think I have been spoilt visiting yards over the last 30 years, seeing and breeding some stunning examples of the breed.

, this is a second generation dark blr bantam roo, still developing his lacing. Is he an improvement :?: in the Sydney area there isn't any other decent blr bantam wyandottes that I have seen. My eggs for original stock came from Victoria, expensive but had to start somewhere. Had a lot of splits to contend with, looking to set base right first onto eb, then with enough to work with will try and improve type

A problem with the rare colours is often the people that work with them start with inferior stock or take shortcuts. You might want to consider going back to a good silver laced bantam bird to improve the lacing and type. If I was doing it I would look at putting him over pullets from a good line of silver laced, and only keeping the resulting pullets to put back over your best blue laced red male. I am not sure if it would work on paper, but works in my mind.

This is a breeder in Victoria's Birds, and would be the sort of birds I would be chasing.
