    Hey everyone!!

    I just wanted to know what colour my pekin is. Her name is Pekin Pie and she is about 18-20 weeks old in these pics.
    She was sold as a lavender but now I'm not so sure...

    All answers are appreciated!!

    I have a LF Cochin roo the same color, from a lavender pair. Looks like a Splash -- very pretty.
