some of those whites can be confusing, they could easilly be silver with dominant white on a e allel like wheaten. by seeing the parents does help but not always as wheaten is recessive in many cases.

Your not wrong that they can be confusing ruff! I though my understanding of these guys was set in concrete, not so it seems! :lol: Interesting you mention the wheaten though, not long ago I posted a pic I got from the same father with a black mother, the chick had a very red looking head.

Okay so here is my question i have two chicks both we think are lavender both parents are full black. But we believe the babies are lavender however we think the lighter one is ER (Birchen) based and the other is E (Extended black) base.

Okay here is the E downed Chick
Image
Notice the really dark legs not full black like the black babies but not slate either and the dark lines and his beak is also black

And here is the ER downed Chick
Image
Notice the light feet (which are now a gorgeous slate) and the pale coloured beak and lighter lines on his back.

Would love people comments if we are right or totally wrong still learning :S

Okay so here are the updated photos of the babies in this quote firstly the one we thought was E based

we not sure on sex yet but turned out gorgeous colouring not a bit of gold.

Now the one we thought that was ER based

Image

Although pretty and turned out a rooster gold everywhere!!

your rooster is an eqivalent of a brown red in lavender. it was obvious in the chicken down. both most likely ER the all lavender one having melanizers to give full lavender.

Is there any chance Lockit's rooster with the gold could be porcelain or citroen,
or isabel.I am confused by these colours even though I have checked Ruffs gallery
a hundred times. Thanks in advance

an isabel as far as i see is a cuckoo lavender buff columbian.

a porcelain is a lavender milliefluer.

this bird is a brown red with possible excessive gold markings through the breast but the bird is a bit young to tell what the breast pattern will be like.

Thanks Ruff, the excessive gold might be a problem I have as well.
Will Lockit still be able to use that roo for breeding future lav, or will the
gold cause problems ?

The gold is a problem Bronze. The top lavender is more what you want which we are really excited we got him/her.

Bronze if all you have is lav stock without the melanizers then you will need some stock that has them, our lavs come from full blacks with no red which means they have melanizers so we could still use the one with faults if bred back to a black carrying lav without faults to get more lav offspring without faults but it will be much easier to do the same with the lav without faults.

Hi All,

I see that Took Took has started a genetics post, this will also help them understand where to go and determine at hatch which e allele they are working with.

Cheers

Christian

I have an interesting chick. It is now around 12 weeks old and has feathered out to a very pale lavender with a lemon sheen to his feathers. He is also patterned in white but looks neither cuckoo or partridge. I have no photo of Him atm but here is a photo of him at day old.

Image

He is an Araucana and from a baught egg. He was either from an all lavender pen (unlikely) or a pen with a partridge roo, black hens and a blue hen. He has a cuckoo brother as well so one hen must be split cuckoo.

He's still a bit of a mystery to me. I will endeavor to update with a pic of him at present.

Very pretty. He has lavender and sex-linked barring I think, on a duckwing base perhaps? (I'm sure more experienced people can comment more definitively.)
