    I have 3 white Silkie ladies and Lav Roo, what color would I get if I breed them together?? I also have lav, blue and black lav split hens but just wondering what would white and lav breed?

    I think white can hide just about any color so you won't be able to predict what you will get.[​IMG]

    white hides almost any color so you could get any color. lavs a diluter but you have to have 2 copies of the lave gene to get more laves (ex your blacks split to lav X lav roo = more lavs). to improve the lav color breed to pure blacks. cant really tell you much though as i'm just learning this myself and will do breeding this summer with the lavender color
