    I was just wondering what color is this chicken? Are her feathers considered blue? Her name is dusty and she is my son's favorite.

    Easter eggers dont fit into a defined color, so really there is no certain term for her coloration.


    However, just looking at her, Her main color seems to be lavender-ish, with a red-ish speckles. Lol, thats about as close as it gets, I think.


    Shes a very, very pretty girl though. [​IMG]

    She is blue with some red leaking through from whatever was crossed to produce her. If she were lavender, the red would have been a cream color, not red. Very pretty girl! I love those fluffy faces. [​IMG]

    She also appears to have some mottling going on.

    That's funny, we have one that looks almost identical. She is a beautiful blue like yours with the lightest brushing of dark, dark gold all over. We call her honey because it looks like someone drizzled honey all over!
