    In mid-January I won an auction for partridge/lavender/champagne Brahmas. Hatching day was yesterday! Check out these beauties -

    Five hatched - one lavender (!!!), two creamy buff in color, and two a much lighter cream color. I can't wait to see how they feather in!

    My lavender guy - sorry for the bad picture.

    I believe Pearl gray partridge brahma are based on eb(partridge) and the ones you are showing seem to be wheaten based(except for the blue looking one) they could be eWh/eb mix I believe you got a mix run which could mean that none of them will turn out to be lavender at all(but could be hidding it)

    here is a Pearl gray partridge brahman bantam

    I was watching that auction, but my 'bator was already full. I would love to get some champagne brahmas, or even the lavender. They are beautiful!

    Sjisty please post pictures as they grow. I am curious which, if any, might be the champagne color?

    I don't know what colors they are going to be, but they are as cute as they can be!

    Here they are today, five days old. The two on the right are a very light cream color. There are two slightly darker ones (first and third) with spots on their heads.

    Little lavender guy in the middle. He/she looks a little washed out, thanks to the flash.

    My favorite. I have no idea what color this one is, but look at that attitude already!

    I just don´t see any lavender in them...[​IMG] they could be Heterozygous for lavender(split for lavender) and that could be the reason I can´t see any lavender in them(specially the wheaten looking ones)
