First your 2 purple hens will be split Blackshoulder. So if you put them with the Purple Blackshoulder male, you will get All purple color chicks,some Will be Blackshoulder.

My Cock Bird is a Purple Black Shoulder.. I thought that If I bred the girls that are purple colored out of a PBS cock and a Bs hen.. That I would get Purple Bs chicks..? So your saying I'll get a regular purple chick? not a purple BS??? I'm confused.

Are the daughters also black shoulder? They have to be if they were from a Purple BS and a BS hen. If the daughters are not BS then they couldn't be from the BS hen.

OK talking about the BS pattern here: BS x BS always produces 100% BS. That is irregardless if the birds were also another color(such as Purple BS)

Anyways I will cover all bases for you:

Purple BS cock x your Purple daughters(if not BS)= All purples, half will be Purple BS, half will be "regular Purples".

Purple BS cock x Purple BS hen= 100% Purple BS. No regular Purples or Blues at all.

ok was thinking you had regular purple hens. Yes breed BS Purple hen x BS Purple male = 100 % BS Purple chicks. Easy way to remember BS is a pattern not a color. Thats why you can have both on one bird. I always say built it(pattern first) then paint it(add the color) If both parents are the same color all chick will be that color. Same for patterns except the pieds.

Kim, I think the confusion on OUR part is that in your first post in this thread you mention "purple hens".. which to us means a Purple in the India Blue pattern. BS Purple is an entirely different looking bird.

It's all clearer now with this post:

Absolutely correct. Smile

If you were curious.. the reason you got Purple BS girls out of the BS Purple cock and regular BS hen is because Purple is a sex linked color. You might have noticed all of the normal BS babies turned out to be boys and all of the Purple BS turned out to be girls.

Kevin, thanks for clearing that up. Next time need to read throught the post. See where the hens came from both BS so they would have to be BS Purples.

Hi,

What about the breeding of a purple white eye hen to a midnight male?

Jeanna, if your birds are not splits. Midnight x purple white eye=blue hens split midnight ,white eyes & blue males split purple, midnight & white eyes. All will look blue. Hens can not be split purple,peach,or cameo.

Still looks like all blues splits. Better mate for your male,would be midnight, or bronze hens,or hens split bronze or midnight.

Hi,

She was a new hen I did not have another place for her at the time, so I put her in with him. He loves as many girls as he can get, and his hens seem to do okay with change or the newer arrivals.

The midnight male has a bronze split, midnight split and bs hen with him too.
