What colors will I get?
X 2. A bird can be BOTH splash/blue and lavender. Blue and lavender are both diluters of black (lavender also dilutes red), and the presence of one does not inhibit the other. It can be very difficult to distinguish which birds have which genes.Just a word of warning, you can have second generation birds that are both Blue/Splash and Lavender, but the dominant BBS gene will override the Lavender. It will be impossible to tell which birds are carrying which genes. This is why it's best not to mix the two varieties.
