I got a bunch of eggs this spring. One was a lavendar but the rest were BBS. The lavendar hatched but I didn't band it and now I can't tell it from one of the blue hens that hatched at the same time. The only difference is that one of the two hens that both look like they could be the lavendar has a tiny bit of darker marking on one of her wing areas that looks like a splash mark looks on splash colored bird. The other seems solid without anything that looks like splashing on it. Would the one that has the tiny mark be the blue or is there any way of knowing now which is blue and which is lavendar? I also got a very handsome blue rooster and wonder if they bred at some point would I ever get lavendar or just maybe some splits from a blue rooster and a lavendar hen? At this point all I have is one black hen, one blue hen, one lavendar hen and 2 buff hens and the one blue rooster so if I wanted lavendar would I have to have another rooster? I am adding pictures of both girls. They are just 4 months and came from either Tuff old hen or Miss Prissy as I got eggs from both of them. The front girl has a few flecks of dark you can see in the picture.
