    I have one Araucana cockerel, his mum was a black Araucana and his dad was Lavender Araucana.

    My old neighbor hatched two chicks from my two Araucana's which are related and both black.
    One chick was lavender and one was lavender with black patches.
    If i had more black Araucana's and Lavender Araucana's would i be able to breed straight colours from my cockerel because of his parents different colours?

    I haven't Got any pictures of mum or dad.
    The mum is still alive and she is stone black, she is in England.
    The mum and Dad belong to my dad.
    The dad was a lavender British Araucana and the mum was a black British Araucana.

    All of their of-spring were black, but when a couple of the Araucana's crossed they made a lavender hen.
