    I think he is Grey laced Wyandotte but my husband thinks he is Lavender laced. (Its mid Autumn so he is starting to molt)
    Whatever he's not Silver laced Hen we thought we were buying when we got the chicks 6 months ago
    He hasn't crowed at all so far (he is called Lucky for a reason) but is far bigger than the hens but is quite timid around people.

    What Colour should we call him?

    I'm not able to help with your question, but I just wanted to say that he looks stunning, whichever color he is!

    He looks like a silver laced, mixed with a splash. Beautiful!

    Thanks!
    Whatever he is I hope he never crows so we can keep him! (I know this is never going to happen!)

    I'm not positive, but I believe that coloring is Violet laced. Here is a Violet laced hen from Feathersite:
