Ummm..

the only way to make a violet with a Turquoise Cock is to have a Violet Hen. And from that pairing you also get Blue, Turquoise and Violet Turquoise.

Ok turqoise is dominant over blue soo.

Turq cock + Blue Hen = Blue and Turq babies
Dont put Turq with yellow or green
Turq cock + white Hen = Blue or Turq with the males split for albino
Turq cock + Blue lacewing = Blue or Turq with the males split for lacewing
Turq cock + Blue Cinnamon = Blue or Turq with the males split for cinnamon.

you see where this is going.. you can only really get splits for all the sex linked colours

So your best bet is to use a Turquoise, Albino, or Blue hen.

Another consideration might be :

Turquoise cock x Grey hen=

25% Turquoise
25% grey
25% Blue
25% turquoisegrey

Good luck with the violent. I only know of one girl in Japan that is able to consistantly produce those.

There is a thread in regards to purple IRN's I started weeks ago. Scroll through old Misc. comment and questions and you'll find it.

Has many links.

There are a few breeders here in Australia who are having great success with Violet Ringnecks.
I got to see a Violet Lacewing not long ago :)

I agree!A Grey lacewing is a good choice.
Any bird with grey to your turquoise is a good cross.
