    I dont have any pics but raise lavender Orps and from my understanding Isabella is just lav with buff leaking thru. I would imagine at that age chicks would b a light even blue shade with a buff cast especially to the neck and breast. I may be wrong but almost pos the lavender gene is def involved as I seen some other members Isabella projects they were working on.

    Ok, so if the mother does have black on the feathers, the mother is a normal wheaten that has blue wheaten chicks. Thanks.
