    I was wondering if anyone might happen to have some pics of newly hatched Lavender Cochins?

    Do lavs breed true and should all chicks hatch out lavender or would I get some various shades of blues and some splashes also?

    Thanks for any help!

    I'm pretty sure they breed true to eachother- at least I hope so! I know you shouldn't breed them to blue, black or splash or you'll lose the lav (at least you won't see it)

    I got mine older, so no baby pics.

    Yes, blue/splash is an entirely different gene.

    Here's my lavender Cochins at a day or two. The darkest one in the next pic is blue.
