    Our neighbours found this one in her backyard and rehomed it with us after not finding an owner.
    She has a lot more of the black/dark grey feathers mixed in now.
    I was thinking a lavender splash Orpington as I cant find anything that looks like her.
    thanks

    Yes, it does resemble my Splash Australorp, but the tail seems a little off.

    Could someone please post photos of a lavender splash Australorp?
    This hen showed up at my house, no idea what she is, but it seems like maybe lavender splash Australorp or a mix

    I'm thinking Splash Orpington as well. How old, do you know?
