I have come across a few threads (Jersey Giants, Orps, Silkies) where people say they are getting Lavender (also termed self blue) birds from B/B/S matings. Is this possible? My understanding is that Lavender is a totally different gene than Blue (B/B/S), and that both parents must carry a copy of Lavender, for the offspring to be Lavender. The offspring (to appear as a Lavender) must receive one copy of Lavender from each parent. Am I wrong? IF I am correct, then what are these birds they are talking about? Are they simply a pale blue?
