    If I crossed a lavender orpington with a blue orpington? What would the chicks be? Mixed colors, or some blues, and some lavenders?

    As I understand the workings of lavender and blue, that crossing would give you 50/50 black and blue with all being 'split to' lavender.
    Then crossing those offspring back to the lavender parent would result in about 50% lavender.
