    I'm definitely not a pea geneticist, but:
    If your hen is 100% IB, then IB hen + BS male = IB chicks only.
    Both of the parents have to be at least split to BS to get BS chicks.

    Also, all of the chicks from them will be split to B S . I assume the black shoulders are blues . George
     
  4. I would put a couple or three of the IB hens in with the purple pair and produce some extra purple hens and split to purple males.
