Hi everyone!! I have some Lavender Orpingtons who hatched some eggs a few months ago and there was a 99% hatch rate! Well, yesterday I notice one momma decided to go broody again and is laying on some more. Last batch of chicks were mixed breed and I have decided for them to be my barnyard mix. Well, this hatch will be 100% lavender orpingtons as I only have one rooster this time and I know for sure she's only laying on her eggs. My question is this: My lavender Orpington rooster is mottled. (Has some white feathers) I know with the bar gene, like in barred rocks, the chicks will always have barred feathers. Will these chicks all be mottled? Does it work like the bar gene?
