2 clues:

the white is just her old faded feathers, she has not completed her moult.

she is not lavender but in the lavender version she would look like a white with a touch too much blu in the rinse.

Not very good with chicken colours, but I will have a go. If she was a horse and a dilute colour like this and the light eye, it would be a dun, so I will go with that.

I guess dun.
