There’s a baby chick at this farm. It’s father is a Isabel Orpington. I’m unclear on the mom. The hen raising it is the black hen.

Black Australorp, light Brahma.
The light Brahma is the mother. Which means the rooster isn’t a true isabel, he’s either an isabel x lavender or just a lavender with leakage. Isabel Orpingtons are partridge under recessive lavender, while lavender orpingtons are black under recessive lavender.

Interesting! He sure looked Isabel, but I guess those are rare.
