    I had white, pearl and lavender eggs in my incubator. All my whites died (fully formed in shell, not sure why), and I ended up with 14 pearl, 6 lavender and one?? This one appeared lavender when out of the egg except for the stripes on the head. Now it's three weeks old and beige, for lack of a better term. Is this a mix between white/pearl or lavender/pearl or?

  2. I have one almost exactly like this. Sort of a dilute of Royal Purple, methinks. But how did it happen? No clue here.

    Maybe a White X Lavender? Or a light colored Lavender?
