This s a Coronation blue Columbian Marans hen. I incorporated the blue gene from the onset of this experiment. Not the lavender gene. The reasoning was you can do more with a blue gene then you can with a lavender one. This project also produced Silver and Silver blues in Wheaten Marans. And Buff and Buff Blues in Columbian. Lavender genes turn red/gold/buff into cream and would ruin the coloration in those other colors.
