True lavenders can't be mixed colors genetically. So don't breed any other colors unless you want the resulting lavender offspring to be other color carriers

 

If you want true lavenders, then only breed true lavender birds together. If they are true lavenders, then they will only give you lavender offspring. No other colors. 

 

 

Paws4440- the above duck is a blue, therefore any offspring that turned out lavender from her are NOT true lavenders
