    I'd say barred rock since it has yellow legs

    The OP's chick looks to have a white headspot, that makes it barred or cuckoo.

    I'm new to chickens this year, but the pic you shared looks exactly like my barred rocks when they were that size

    yeah it's a barred/cuckoo something.

    could lavender be referring to the guinea keets? if yours is very light colored all over, could be a lavender guinea.
