Together with the flock
Yes, self blue (lavender) chicken will breed true if two are bred together. Unlike the result of two blue chicken are bred together: 50% blue, 25%black, and 25% splash chicks. I don't know much about chicken genetics, so hopefully someone with more knowledge will come around. :)
You might find some good info if you search around this thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/317906/self-blue-lavender-silkie-thread/3370
