    I have a Lav Roo Pekin from two Lavender parents. I'm aiming to get a good colour, any ideas what colours I could get if I x him with different colour hens?

    Unless they also have lav, the results would be the same as if he were black

    Lavender is a dilution. If he is solid lavender coloured, then what you see is a dilution of black. If you see any cream or pale gold, that is a dilution of red/gold/buff.
