This project is still under development. Although I am producing lavender mottleds with two copies of the mottling gene, the type of the birds still needs to improve. These will continue to be bred back to black mottled and lavender birds with excellent type. Upon purchasing these chicks, you should expect to have to breed back to the above in order to continue to improve on the type. But, these chicks will make the process much easier! These chicks have one copy of the mottling gene instead of two so they are considered lavender split to mottled.
