    I wonder if I could make them my self. I have splash Giants, black Giants and white Giants. I know that balck with splash will give me blue, so could I go from there? I know nothing about color genetics. Do I need another element in the pot? (AKA Coop) [​IMG]

    those colors are not the same, you need a lavender bird to start with. [​IMG]

    Its true I think Jody and Chalie's Lavender Orphs would be the most apropriate to start with for both these breeds.

    OK, I will have to look for some of thm then. At least the two breeds look alike. It would be hard to get a nice looking lav Giant useing a Bantam Silkey or something. [​IMG]
