I thought this guy came from the lav pen - now I'm not so sure - possibly a blue hen in the Lav pen or a mixed up egg from blue, black, white group.
What do you think?

I think he's blue too. It's possible to have blue and lavender in the one bird. They look lavender. So one of the hens might be blue?

A blue with one dose of lav will look blue.
A blue with homozygous lav (2 doses) will look lavender.

If you look closely at the feathers can you see fret marks? If you can it's lav.
