    You can't get Lavender out of any of he birds you have. You will need to cross in a Lavender breed. The closest bird would be a Coronation Sussex, & if not then you have to go out to a Lavender Araucana type bird.

    Or you can buy split black/lav project chicks from Jody and Charlie when they have them available. [​IMG]

    Or wait until you see eggs available on eggbid.

    hinkjc and wildsofpa are husband and wife BYC members with a wonderful project underway with crazy good results!
