    I'm not sure I just got him Firday. He was sold to me as a Lavendar but I'm confused between the Lavendar and the Isabel.

    I'm not sure but would consider your roo as a lavender Orpington. Gorgeous bird regardless of color. I notice some black spots on the girls' combs - I wonder if from frost bite or fowl pox

    I would say Lavender, but I'm not sure.
