    I *think* these are lavender and pearl, but there is one that is different. Any ideas?

    Thank you in advance!

    my guess is buff on the brownish colored one. in your last pic the one that is the darkest looks like a royal purple to me. the others are lavender & pearls.

    It's not buff, way too dark for that. Could be brown. [​IMG]

    And I agree, it looks like there are a couple of royal purples in there.

    Here's a site that has good pics and descriptions of the different colors

    The hens are supposed to be darker in the buffs [​IMG] The males are almost white quite often.

    Thank you very much! They just began they're goofy calls this week.

    Oh, and the orange ping pong balls are their toys. They are actually cat toys that rattle when moved. I put them in their brooder from day one and they love them! Silly beasts.
