 LF Lavender/Duckwing & standard Duckwing Araucana Chicks

This project is coming together nicely. We have many split black/lavender Araucana in tufted and rumpless young breeders.

We have the first of many to come lavender Araucana chicks (tufted and rumpless) growing out in our brooders..


 

**Update on the LF Lavender Araucana project..**we now have our first few chicks in split black/lavender with tufts from our first phase of this project, which started with a clean face, tailed LF Lavender Roo (ameraucana type - no beard or muffs) with pea comb, carrying the blue egg gene and bred to tufted, tailed black Araucana hens laying blue eggs. We have a few more hatches of them to go.

 **Update ..2nd phase of the project  **  We now have some of our first Clean face/Rumpless Black chicks carrying the lav gene. which were bred from a clean face, tailed LF Lavender Roo (ameraucana type - no beard or muffs) with pea comb, carrying the blue egg gene being bred to clean faced, rumpless black Araucana hens laying blue eggs. 

**Update ..phase 3 has begun** we will  start to breed the tufted, tailed type split black/lavender to the clean-faced, rumpless type split/black lavender to try to produce the ideal LF Lavender Araucana with both traits (tufted and rumpless).
