Allegedly Silver Laced Polish but looks different than the others. Any idea?

    I received an order from mypetchicken that contained several breeds including three silver laced polish. Two of the three were dead cold on arrival...and by process of elimination, the only remaining bird is supposed to be this silver laced polish. Though it looked NOTHING like the other two. Included are pictures of a polish chick, and what I have. Even someone as un informed as I have a hard time believing these are the same breed. Any insight on this? Perhaps whether or not it is a gender difference or if not, what this bird is.

    Thanks all!

    Definitely not a polish. It's something lavender. Looks to have a single comb so I'll guess lavender orpington, I think they carry those.

    I saw plenty of orpingtons on their site but no lavender ones. I did however google it and they seem pretty close overall, but the legs on the ones I googled seemed much darker than mine. Is that indicative of something different?

    Thanks!

    Weird I wonder why I couldnt find them...hmmmmm...


    Anyway, you'd think thats the closest match? What of the much more orange legs mine has? Individual variation perhaps?

    Not a Polish. I would guess Lavender Orpington, too.
