    In the picture, I believe it has lavender feathers. Can you get a picture better showing it's coloring? Also, it is too young to determine the gender. I would post more pictures once it turns around eight weeks old. :)

    Meyer doesn't have any Lavender varieties. It's either a blue Andalusian, Blue Marans, or Blue Orpington.

    I agree - blue andalusian. Could it be a splash though? I only think that because this was my blue andalusian at that age:

    She was 7 weeks here^

    [​IMG]
    ^4 weeks here

    This chick has the coloring similar to my splash marans at that age so that's why I'm thinking splash.

    For comparison, here is my splash marans at 4 weeks (it says andalusian because she was mistaked for that breed):

    ^Daisy at 7 weeks.

    Blues don't always breed true, so when you order blue andalusians you have a chance of getting a blue, black, or splash.
