    Does anyone have them, especially around oklahoma? I have seen one, that was at a show today, but she was so pale not even sure she was a self blue.

    Self blues look a bit like lavenders.

    We had a self blue game when I was a kid. She was my favorite hen.

    I know self blue is also referred to as lavender, that it is a diluting gene, but I have only ever seen 1 modern game that was called self blue and she looked more white than self blue...does anyone have any?
