Is this little lady a lavender Ameraucana or a blue splash Ameraucana?

    When I got her as a 4 week old chick from a local breeder who has black and blue Ameraucana, she told me that color is considered Lavender. My pretty girl is now 12 weeks old and she has the dark splashes. So would she be considered a blue splash or a Lavender or is there such a thing as a Lavender Splash? I've searched the internet and not finding an answer.

    That is a splash, lavender is a solid light blue color without any other markings.

    Thank you! I saw her when I was getting a few older chicks of 10-12 weeks old, absolutely loved her color, and couldn't say no! She was only 4 1/2 wks, and I had to have her with the heart lamp when the others didn't need it, but I'm sooooo glad now I got her because the other two turned out to be boys, ugh! Sheesh, now I have to find homes for those two cuz that gives me a total of 4 roos with only 9 hens! Too many!
