Sort of! A true buff laced bird will have lacing as strong as a gold laced or silver laced with the black lacing replaced with white. Where there is lacing on your bird it looks incomplete and fuzzy. Doesn't look there is much lacing on the hackle either.

I think you have a very light-Blue laced Buff there. Buff laced is white lacing, where you will have blue/splash lacing from the blue parent.

You also will have Incomplete lacing genes. Breed this bird back to the blue parent and you will improve the lacing next generation. You will also get splashed laced, chicks as well as blue laced and black laced.

Raf , I haven't forgot you , just a bit time poor recently . I will give you pm as soon as I can . Mart
Aaron , I can't remember if there were any buff/laced in the eggs you have cooking at the moment . If there is and you get a male , she should be OK with him . Her lacing is not the best but the rest is not too bad . You may get gold laced male (carrying the buff/laced ) use him if you do . (I always put buff/laced to a gold/laced carrier ) either way !. What ever male you use it needs to have good lacing .

This the typical pattern you get with Pg,Pattern gene,on a eWh,Wheaten background. Your Blue cock is eb,Brown which is recessive to eWh from the Buff, also your Buff which is eWh will not have Pg or Co,Columbian & Ml,Melonotic which are required for the lacing complex.
From the looks of the lacing,difficult to see except for neck hackle, I think you have I,Dominant White from the Buff. You can confirm this if there are white feathers in the wing & bail,and no black on the bird.
As I think this white lacing is from I rather than Splash Blue I can't see any point mating it to a Blue, as in Wyandottes they should not be laced anyway. If you have a Gold Laced you have a better chance of improving the lacing & getting both Gold Laced & Buff Laced. Don't expect exhibition birds from this first hatch.
