    Hi,
    look for a list of poultry genotypes on the net. I know there is one. It includes color genes for a slew of breeds. Lavender is anagram= lav Blue is anagram= Bl or bl.
    Best,

    Any variety called "lavender" is based on the lavender gene (Lav).
    Any variety called "blue" is base on the blue gene (Bl).

    Here is the kicker...
    The APA/ABA variety called "self blue" is actually lavender, as in based on the lavender gene (Lav).
    I know it doesn't make sense here in the 21st century, but the APA/ABA refuses to get with the times.
