So I bought a lavender Orpington and two random "rare" breeds, one turned out to be a white cochin but I'm stumped with this one. It's not the same as my lavender Orpington and they breed true so it wouldn't be a variation. (the feet are peach not pink, the feathers are grey and white not grey and yellow, etc. ). So what could it be?
I'll label them #1 and #2 for ease

Left feet is #1 and right feet is #2 see how one is pink and the other peach? One is maybe slightly green and the other black. Both clean legged.

Meyers. And one know is a lavender orpington. Is a white jersey giant considered a rare breed? I'm still fairly new here but I thought jerseys where common.
I am thinking might be a blue breed, looking at what they have as rare breeds, a lot of them looks so much alike at this age. or I need more than one extra cup of coffee and find my reading glasses, but the blue ones they have is closest I could see to it

Hatcheries consider Easter Eggers as rare breeds, as well as their designer breeds.

Yes, black Jersey Giants are common. Whites are not common at all. However Meyers does not have whites so that rules out that possibility.
