    What do you get when you cross a self blue/lavender rooster to:

    1) blue hens
    2) black hens
    3) splash hens

    1) blue hens - blue and black chicks split for lavender
    2) black hens - black chicks split for lavender
    3) splash hens - blue chicks split for lavender

    I think that's it, but I'm not as familiar with blue and splash as I'd like to be. If it helps, you need to think of your lavender as a black bird for the initial cross. [​IMG]

    pinkchick...we really love our little "Sammy". He's a good boy.

    hinkjc...thanks so much! Thinking of the lavender roo as black really helps...thanks for that tip!
