    I bought hatching eggs that were Araucana black split to lavender. I had one chick black and this one. Is this Lavender, because he is a completely different color from my blues. [​IMG]

    lavenders are never splash or mottled. they are solid pale gray/blue with no lacing, barring, spots or mottles. someone with a better understanding of the genetics can probably explain it better, but basically it is a true recessive gene and is not part of the bbs color genetics so lav/lav is required to get the color. maybe your bird looks like some sort of splash? any experts want to help me out?
