    Cross posting from the genetics board
    I purchased a trio of bantam cochins a couple of months ago and I posted them on here. They were sold to me as blue cuckoos. There first set of eggs from them hatched last week. All of the chicks were born dark with the white spot on the back of their heads except for one. One of them was born a pale pale blue color. Well today the second batch of eggs from my trio started hatching and there is one "normal" colored chick so far and another strange colored chick.
    Here are some pictures of my adults

    Could they be lavenders?
