    the breeder said others are calling them silver but he considers them blue. I havent heard back from him on if he knows their true color....so i'm asking here.

    Blue or lavander? It's very light powdery grey...so that's why i thought lavander.

    They aren't lavender, at least not completely--they would be more solid coloured if they were. Lavender dilutes red pigment, I can't tell for sure, but the reddish colour in the first pic doesn't really look dilute.

    I would guess blue plus some sort of pattern.
