    I have a pair of lavender ameraucanas (about 4 months old), and 3 splash (they are only about a month old right now). If I would cross the lavender with the splash, what would I get? I'm just asking because I was curious... Thanks!

    Here are my Lavenders...

    If I would cross the lavender with the splash

    Blue on the first cross.
    There is nothing to be gained by putting blue into lavender lines.​

    I was thinking of the same thing for my cochins, and then I found out you'd get all blues, so forget that [​IMG]
