    I have a Lavender Orpington rooster, and what thought were a blue and a black purchased together. But the black one is not at all like the shiny black I have seen in pics. It's almost like she is wearing blue bloomers! And is my blue really blue or just a darker lavender?!![​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Oh myLANTA!! So my "black" is blue and my "blue" lady is actually a lavender too? I knew my roo is lavender, but the other gray one has always been darker gray (but still uniform). Ha ha I am really bad at this! Dang they're cute though [​IMG]
