    I have people ask all the time. Some have said Splash but she doesn't look anything like my Splash Silkies. I've herd Blue, or Grey.......She looks more like my Self Blue D'uccle color.........

    I am certainly no expert but she looks like my lavender silkies...
    totally off topic, but what is that next to her? very unique stripes!

    In the natural light she looks to be lavender in the other she looks to be blue. I think she is a lavender.

    Must be an Emu next to her, with those stripes and long legs.

    Well, I say Lavender. But that confuses me when you don't know the color, I think most breeders would tell you if it was Lavender.
