    OK- I have a lavender rooster from Hinc JC- If I crossed him over my light sussex- then took those splits, and bred them back to another lavender orp, what markings would I get??? Or would i breed them to a coronation rooster-what would that make?? Just curious, my mind is working overtime trying to figure it out. Im seriously thinking about trying it.thanks

    Quote:First let me say the first [true] Coronation color like on U.K. Coronation Sussex is Blue Coloumbian and are bred form Blue and not Lavender. Now the Auz. [and I believe Green Fire Farms] Coronation color are Lavender Based and are truly a Lavender Coloumbian not a Coronation.

    Now you can cross a Lavender with a Light Sussex and in time you can get a Lavender Coloumbian color.
