    It looks like a mixed breed. I don't see a strong greenish tint in the legs, but it appears that it might be an Easter Egger.

    Just looks like a generic chick at the moment. If it was sold as a lavender Orpington, what explanation does the seller have?

    The seller , after selling me lavendar orpington hatching eggs, said it was a "splash" but wouldn't tell me more....eBay. It has very dark brown legs ( hard to see in my photo)

    Splash? Not a chance. It's a mutt.

    I'd be following up with the seller, leaving appropriate feedback and persuing a refund. That chick is clearly brown based, no lavender or blue/black/splash.
    I can't tell from the pic, does it have a straight comb?

    I am in a resolution dispute with seller.
