    Hi,
    I was wondering if anyone knew what I would get if I crossed a chocolate(not dun) and a lavender bird? thanks [​IMG]

    You mean what if you succeed to get both mutations to express? In theory the animal would be lavender looking but maybe some minor details are typically different from a black based lavender (skin, shanks, those small spots on some feathers).

    Guess I was wondering what f2 would look like if f1 x f1 and if there was a way to successfully get chocolate into that breed which I only have lavender? Or would it just be a mess....

    I think it would be a waste of time.

    K, thx. I guess I will have to figure out another way... unfortunately I have had a hard time finding black in this breed.
