I was told recently that to get a violet, one had to breed a SLW with a BLRW , then breed back the daughter to the dad, to get a small % of possible violets. my question is this. I had a BLRW roo,(he leaves for his new home tomorrow) who mated with my SLW hen. I was able to hatch one of their eggs in April (a hen did, not me ) that baby was a pullet........ that girl is of no real wyandotte pure color description. I had two other eggs just hatch, from the BLRW roo and the SLW hen. One is a pullet, one is a roo, who has silver highlights. I am hoping to get my hands on some SLW pullets. If I bred the roo ( with the BLRW dad and the SLW mom ) to the SLW hens, would there be a chance of violets?? i hope I haven't confused anyone, haha. I hope i worded it good enough thanks.
