I just got these bantams yesterday. @Brahma Chicken5000 has helped me a LOT and told be that most look to be OEGB (which is true). What about the rest? There’s 6 total.

My uncle bought the eggs from an auction and hatched them. I acquired them yesterday. They were all sold to him as “lavender bantam hatching eggs” but clearly are not
I could see the eggs being labeled as "Lavender".
Lavender doesn't always breed true, especially considering people like to intertwine the names Lavander and Self Blue/Blue. Blue bred to Blue can produce blue, black, and splash. Self Blue and Lavender are recessive.
My guess is the parent stock were a mix of Lavender, Self Blue, and Blue Wheaton. Which, to some people, would seem like it would produce only lavender/blue offspring but that is not the case.
