he appears to be a blue, possibly a lavender. The darker and white feathers lead me to go with blue but I cant tell if there is lacing or not. Either way, the color should be more even w/o the dark spots and white feathers.

A really heavy splashed "Splash" is what I was thinking.. His color, from what I would guess from showing before..is like a cinnamon,But almost blue. Maybe Lilac would be a better explaniation ?? I really don't know my color names for poultry anymore.. HaHa! The guy I bought him from had some BEAUTIFUL cochins, but they were all roosters. Then he had this little guy, By far the prettiest banty there. Would love to see what he and some little black splash hens would throw.......

Looks to be blue but on his wing it looks like he has some spangling as well.

I have noticed a color on Ideal's Web page, it is a pearl. Take a look at the picture and discription of it. It sounds and looks just like the bird in the picture. I dont know anything about this color, so not sure but just a thought.
