For those too lazy to click

(Directly from Keith's Orpingtons - I do not own the pictures)

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Chocolate Gene

Chocolate is a sex linked recessive gene.

So a cockerel needs two copies of the gene to be chocolate but the hen only needs one.

Chocolate x Chocolate = 100% Chocolate

Black split Chocolate cockeral x Black hen = 25% Black split cockerals/ 25% Black cockerals/ 25% Black hens/ 25% Chocolate hens

Chocolate cockeral x Black hen = 50% Black split cockerals / 50% Chocolate hens 

Black cockeral x Chocolate hen = 50% Black split cockerals/ 50% Black hens

Black split Chocolate cockeral x Chocolate hen =25% Black split Chocolate cockerals/ 25% Chocolate cockerals/ 25% Black hens/ 25% Chocolate hens

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Lavender Gene ( Pearl Grey )

Lavender is an autosomal  gene which means that as it is not sex linked it is inherited the same way on both male and female birds.

It is also recessive so both parents need to carry the Lavender gene for the young stock to visually show Lavender so a bird with only one Lavender gene will not show any Lavender colouring but can be used to breed Lavender.

Lavender breeds true so in its pure form Lavender mated to Lavender will always breed Lavender.

Lavender can also be used to create lots of new shades and colours as it is a diluting gene as long as the bird is carrying two doses of Lavender . All black colouring will become Lavender and any red pigment will dilute to a straw colour.

Lavender x Lavender = Lavender

Lavender x Black = 100% Black split Lavender

Black split Lavender x Black split Lavender = 25% Lavender/ 50% Black split Lavender/ 25% Black

And here you are again. You have great taste(First the BLRW thread and now Isabel Orpingtons, my 2 favs).  :D  There is a user here, @jan12 who was working on an Isabel Laced Orpington and if I remember correctly, she came up with some really outstanding birds.  I'd be absolutely thrilled to get a chance to purchase some of her hatching eggs, but I've missed the boat each time. :/  I have a plan, though.  I'll get some of these beauties in our yard one way or another.  They scream class to me.

In over our head and loving every minute!  Currently fancying Old School Rhode Island Reds, Blue Laced Red Wyandottes,  Rhodebars, B/B/S Australorps

It's about sewing new seeds and strengthening old roots.
