    A dozen + eggs out of my pen with 2 lav roos, 2 lav hens and 6 black split/lav hens. I have hatched many lavenders and so have others on BYC that bought these. They will ship out Monday the 4th. Bid Price + $11.00 Shipping with Confirmation and Tracking Number.

    These are the birds the eggs will be coming from. NOT the Black roo in front, he`s long gone from this coop.

    Lav to Lav produces all Lav offspring - thus the gene is set

    Lav to Black produces all Black offspring carrying a Lav gene (black in visual color) - the gene is set. Breed these splits back to a lav bird and progeny will be lavender and split lavender.

    Lav/Black split (black in color) to Lav/Black split (black in color) can produce Lav, split Lav/Black or Black chicks. Breed lavender offspring back to split parent and produce all lav chicks. You can also breed split offspring back to split parent and get some lavender chicks.

    Lav/Black split (black in color) to Black will produce some split Lav/Black chicks (black in color) and some Black chicks. Breed the split offspring back to the split parent and you will produce lav chicks.

    A lavender bird has recessive lavender + recessive lavender genes
    A split black bird has recessive lavender + dominant black genes
    A non-split black bird has dominant black + dominant black genes


    So:
    lavender bred to lavender = 100% lavender offspring
    lavender bred to split black = 50% lavender and 50% split black offspring
    lavender bred to non-split black = 100% split black offspring
    split black bred to non-split black = 50% split black and 50% non-split black
    non-split black bred to non-split black = 100% non-split black offspring​
