    I have some Silver Laced Polish x Broiler chickens that I thought would be what I have heard referred to as dominant white, I think? White with a few small black spots here and there?

    Anyway, they are kind of an off-white color. Looks like they've been rolling in dust and are dirty, not quite white, but not quite any other color. A few tiny little black splotches here and there. Their mothers were white broilers and were, by all appearances, pure white.

    What might this color be called?

    Quote:Oh, that's not very interesting! If these dirty-white birds are white, what are the white-white birds? I don't see how they can be the same thing.

    And they are DEFINITELY not dirty, they have been in a wire cage brooder their whole lives so far.

    It's hard to tell in the photos, but they are a dirty white, almost lavender undertones.
