    Actually I was looking it up and that is what I thought too but then I Googled lit and the pics that came up weren't the same as the one that estes hatchery shows on their site.

    Your dad is probably thinking about lilacs. I do know the bronze turkeys can sometimes look purple in different light too...or even the black spanish. They are much like Jersey giants and australorps in the way that they shine.
