Good day all. I have a question about breeding for the lavender color. We have a trio of beautiful lavender/self-blue Ameraucanas. We were not planning to breed them, but have fallen in love with their coloring and dispositions and a secondary project my daughter wanted to do for Olive Eggers was calling for a blue-egg rooster so we thought we’d look around. Long story short, all of the Roos I can find have yellowing in the hackle/saddle feathers. Is this yellowing only from the lavender gene turning red into that color, or is this a separate issue with lavenders due to feather quality? Is this a trait likely to be passed on or one that we can select against in the next generation? Trying to decide if we need to keep waiting and looking or take a chance on one of these. Thank you!
