So I am very new to all chicken rearing. I have a small flock of Buff Orpingtons started and they are gorgeous.
I have managed to hatch two supposed lavender orpington chicks (they look very light grey to me) and I bought one small chick who I'm pretty sure is a young cockeral.
As the pullets are from different stock than the cockeral I had planned to breed them next summer to expand the flock.
In reading these posts though, it appears that the Lavender colouring is coming from mixing Black Orpingtons Lavender. Is that correct?
What would happen if I bred Lavender to Lavender?
THank you for feedback. I have no one in my area of Ontario who seems to have Lavender Orpingtons so I'm uneducated and so very excited!
