Easter eggers don't have any sort of 'standard' colors. From a genetics standpoint, you might call that color silver based duckwing or silver based, wild type partridge.

Agreed. EEs are hybirds produced by crossing blue egg layers with brown egg layers to produce offspring that lay eggs in colors other than just blue. Since they are hybrids, they will not breed true nor do they conform to any color standards.
