    Yeah I couldn’t remember that and you’re probably right about the lavender.

    I believe it is Wheaten based.

    Yes the coronation sussex as we know it is a light sussex pattern with lavender replacing the black.
    I raised them for a while and they're beautiful birds.
    They were the breed and variety that put GFFs in the chicken business.
    The original version of the coronation sussex isn't exactly known but I think its agreed upon that they were blue and not lavender. Its also been written they were a red, white and blue variety to match the colors of the union jack flag.
    It would be interesting to find out exactly what the originals looked like.

    The red white and blue were actually jubilee Orpingtons, I believe.

    Yes, but that’s what they were developed for, if I recall.
    I’ve also seen blue Jubilee but I don’t think those existed then.

    Na. The jubilee Orpington was created at the end of the 1800s to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria.
    The coronation orpington was created decades later for the coronation of King Edward VIII which never took place. There were no known pics of them but some writings that told of the three colors but not locations so the exact pattern isn't known.

    Many Chicken types have resulted from an unknown mutation popping up. Is there any way to predict how often mutations will occur? Of course, speak on any information regarding mutations.

    No. Genetic mutations happen at random.
