    in some birds the black is used with the lavendar to deepen the lavendar - such as Lavendar Orpingtons with which I'm very familiar - said she who has hatched 200+ chicks.

    Is it different with silkies that blue is used to enhance the lavendar?

    Lovely birds, by the way...Thanks! Nancy

    Quote:Nancy, I'm not certain about that, which is why I don't breed that color line. Sounds probable though. In my circumstance, my foundation stock came from a blue x lavender, so in order to hatch a lavender both parents must carry the lavender gene. I have hatched 1 lav for sure, I lost one that was possibly a lavender on the 2nd day due to a fall, and may have sold one.

    I don't know the lav genetics so I am staying away from it for now. Sticking to what I know so I don't get into a mess, lol!

    blue x lav is a no no!
    it washes out, does not leave an attractive color, and will not breed true. Lav should be bred to lav, black or lav/black splits (some have reported some success w wheaton).

    FLChick are you going to have eggs available at Nava's? I just lost my favorite st cochin roo (old age), your birds I like! If you are could you pm me? Thanks

    Quote:Exactly why I stay away from lav, because I don't know the proper genetics! Not breeding lav myself for that reason! I won't be at Nava's only because it is too far to travel. Sorry about your roo [​IMG] I have kept some boys around just for that very reason. I love my "Big Blue" roo, he is a pretty boy.
