Several months back I purchased four orpingtons. A roo and three hens. I was told two were lavender and the other two were black. The roo and a hen were lavender. I incubated several eggs and started hatching them. The first one hatched mother's day and the others are 5 and 6 weeks old. My confusion stated when this girl started feathering out. Can you get a laced color from a black/lavender split? I thought all black splits were solid black? Here is dad... Brother... Should I breed her to a black roo lavender roo??? Help please.
