    Could be blue,.....I get those confused when their little.

    I thought lavender too, but I have no idea how that happened! I thought I needed 2 lavenders to get a lav. I only have lav girls. Very confused! lol​

    Are you sure one of your cockerels/cock birds is not a split?

    I have 1 white, 1 splash, a buff and a cuckoo. The cuckoo is from mine, the other 3 were given to me......but I thought the lav had to be split to black? Can you make a split with other colors? If so...maybe they are! LOL​

    Contact the breeder you got your other males from, I bet the white or the splash is carrying the lavender gene.
