    [​IMG][​IMG]This color is soooo much prettier than I can have show up in these pics....a pale grey undercoat, with blond tips throughout. I hope it's a hen, because if it's a rooster, it'll have to go to the country.[​IMG]

    Sorry....trying to get used to the new BYC. This pic is the closest to the true color I could find....the pics make the grey look darker and the yellow look more orange.[​IMG]

    Is it possible she is a blue partridge? Looks a lot like one of my hens when she was that age.
    ETA: I was also told lavender is not present on any bird with red coloration...
