    I keep wanting to call her lavender or porcelain, but I really have no idea what color she is. She's out of a friends high end SQ stock. Kinda reminds me of a splash minus the splash marks + a little buff mixed in lol. Just curious what the genetics are behind her [​IMG]

    You'd almost need to know what the prior 2 or more generations were. Even though show stock, if penned together for breeding, mixed colors arise.
    I kinda like those mixed colors myself [​IMG]

    Since the bird came from a friend's stock, ask your friend the background.
