You chose these children.
 Genotype  

 
 Yes, these are our dear children!

 

Both of them have brown legs, which goes with the genotype of the purple parent.

The purple parent has two genes for the dominant characteristics of brown legs, so each child gets one of those genes.

Each parent has a recessive gene for purple body, so one child is purple and one is orange.

 Thank you for finding our babies!
