    Finally snapped some pictures today--

    I hope these will convince everyone of just how great mottling can really look on Lavender!

    These are of an 8 or 9 month old pullet. We have built up a nice size flock.

    She's just lovely matte! [​IMG] Congratulations on your efforts.

    Do you only have Lav Mottled? Or have you breed the gene in to Blacks (or Blues) as well?

    I'd love to see a picture of one of your boys too.

    I hope to start my own BBS Mottled project this year, I'm looking forward to breeding this variety as well. Congratulations on your flock!

    How did you do that? I have regular Mottled Orpingtons, do I just breed them with Lavender Orpingtons?
