New Hampshire X Silver Laced Wyandotte (alledgedly)
Quite why any one would do this escapes me. Probably good broodies!

I crossed a New Hampshire Red rooster with my mutt hen, Australorp x Dark Brahma. The hen was all black, small comb and poorly feathered legs. Got two hens from this mating, they both turned out a brilliant mahogany red ( like the New Hampshire but brighter) with gray down, the fluffy bum of the Brahma, small comb of the Brahma and legs that sprout the odd feather stub. Their body shape is heavier than New Hampshire, but they are steady layers. I think they look nice.

My friend crossed a White Laced Red Wyandotte male (from Blue Laced) to a NHR female and all the offspring looked like NHR but had Blue in the respective black areas (as one would expect). The females showed no sign of Ml, but the male had a bib of lacing underneath his neck but was otherwise like a New Hamp.
They were the best broodies ever.
