I hatched last season from my blr bantam wyandottes a pullet that i initially thought was splash but as she matured her lacing looked more buff. Well i have hatched 3 chicks from her this season and they are all buff laced red.
How would the 1 random buff laced red turn up out of the blue :hmmm: . Dominant over the blue, by the looks. Looks like i will stop hatching her eggs, as don't want to breed them. Will sell them off. Are they popular enough to sell well :think: .

When you say buff laced red, do you mean red ground colour and white lacing?

Red ground colour with a light cream/ buff lacing. Googled the colour and she does match the buff laced red wyandottes. Definitely not white lacing, chick down colour is nothing like the eb splash . The chicks are a real cream in down colour and as they feather the red ground colour comes in with cream lacing, At first i thought the chicks were wheaton but they show no wheaton pattern in wing feathers. Wings are a solid light clear cream colour.
I have bred plenty eb/ ewh chicks and have had 1 pure wheaton chick from some Queensland eggs . The chicks don't match these.

It's either a splash or a very unusual expression of recessive white on a bird with a lot of autosomal red. Unusual because recessive white normally washes out a lot of the red as well as nearly all of the black pigment.

If it is recessive white, then your rooster is carrying it too.

Not recessive white, lacing is cream not white.chick down is different to splash laced red.photo of her in nest, maybe going broody as been there all morning.

Another explanation is i had a cross wyandotte that had cream lacing on red base and maybe i got a egg mixed up when collecting :hmmm: she was almost the same size as the bantam wyandottes, if the case still from the same roo.

Possibly as the chicks are a solid colour and do look wheaton, has good lacing for wheaton , as most don't seem to hold lacing very well.
