Can you tell the difference between Lavender and porcelain silkies?

    I might be buying some lavender eggs but the breeder has some porcelains in with there lavs. I am mainly breeding lavenders but would like to keep 1-2 of the porcelains but no more that that, and I was just wondering if you can tell a difference between the two colors when they hatch or have to wait til they are a bit older? Because I would be selling all the other porcelains but not any of the lavenders and am needing to start to planning for where they will stay/how long.
