    I was messing around on the genetics calculator and 'created' this by putting lavender on gold laced. I think it's so pretty...has anyone ever seen it on a real chicken? If I had the resources I'd try my hand at this lavender patterned isabel laced with some orpingtons. Anybody want to do it for me? lol After all there are lav & gl orps...

    I hope somebody's doing it! I love isabel coloring with lavender. I wish I could see an isabel buff columbian, and an isabel wheaten as well...

    I am doing this with orpingtons! Actually, I'm crossing in mottleds to try to get porcelains too. But I do have hens that have the yellow and lavender lacing already. I'd also like to get a partidge pattern diluted the same way.

    Just remember that unless you're working with a well-patterned, good quality E^R based laced bird it won't turn out to look like that, instead, the tail will be solid, the neck won't be quite as well defined, and the fluff also will show out as a more general lavender than a complementary midtone.

    Here's some pics of the "isabel partridge". I think I like it even better than the lacing, though i'd have to see it on a real chicken to be sure. [​IMG]
