    Self Blue (Lavender) would be a uniform blue color.

    There are a lot of "Blue" colors.
    Self Blue
    Silver Blue
    Blue
    Blue Wheaten
    Blue Brassyback
    Blue Golden Duckwing
    Blue Mille Fleur
    Blue Quail
    Blue Red
    Etc.

    In some breeds it's known as lavender. Lovely bird, btw. I couldn't tell the earlobe/leg color, and did I see a bit of a muff, or is that just the pic resolution. If there's no muff, it looks to be either a Dutch or OEGB. Dutch = white earlobes; OEGB = red earlobes.
