    I have a young OE, and I can't decide if he's lavender or blue. I know there were lavender ameraucanas in the pen, as well as blue copper it could be either, although the odds of lavender were probably pretty low...
    He's got some leakage on his wings and neck that looks straw colored.

    You can see some of the leakage here...



    I realize it's unlikely he carries the blue egg gene due to the single comb, but if he's lavender I may keep him.
