    I bought this beautiful young Cochin hen (approx. 1 year old) as a "blue possibly lavender". Compared to my Blue Cochins, she looks almost light grey. But her head is kind of yellowish dark. So could she be a Lemon Blue? I was hoping for a Lavender, but if she's just a light blue I'm still thrilled to own her. What color would you guys say she is?

    The wings look a bit like splash, but don't quote me on it.
  3. Looks blue to me, definately not lavander.

    The yellowing of the head is not unusual, it tends to come from sun exposure and corn in the diet. [​IMG]
