    Does anyone know the color? It has what looks like some Lavender mixed in with buff.

    Blue; lavender would dilute the buff feathers to isabel. If I had to give a name to the colouring, I would say blue buff partridge.

    What you should breed with depends on what you want as far as offspring. My comment is that the bird has blue, not lavender.
