    Yey!!!!!!!!! My Bobbi Porto babies are here!!!! She is most likely a Lav!!! The pen she came from has the lavender gene.
    What do I breed her with!

    if your hoping to breed more lavs you can breed her/him to a black, offspring will appear black but be split for lavender (carry the gene) and if you bred the offspring together you would get some lavender and some black split for lavender, or if you bred black split for lavender offspring back to her/him you would get some lavender and some black split for lavender.

    if you dont care about colors breed it to whatever you want!

    Hmm although cute she looks like a splash to me. My lav's tend to have more yellow belly but that could be my strain too, also Bobbi's come from her B/B/S pens so that might be affecting the down color. [​IMG]

    And breeding her to black would be your best bet.

    in your origional post you said she is deffinatly a lavender? i would have said she was light grey or splash if you were asking for guesses, but you seemed sure with the exlamation points saying it was lavender?

    ETA: you can only get lavender by breeding lavender to lavender, or to black split for lavender (as is my understanding, im just getting into lavs but i have done much research on the subject). If this came from blue there is no way it is lavender [​IMG]
