Hi, Could this Silke pullet be a lavender with spots? A friend told me she is a lavender with spots. What colour is best to put her with for lavender offsprings? Is she a 'show-able' colour in Australia? Thanks!

Not lavender sorry. The spots are the give away. Lavender completely dilutes black so you will have not spots at all. I would say she is blue or perhaps even splash. If you put her with black roo and you get 100% blue offspring then you know she is splash but i would expect you would get 50/50 black/blue with a black roo.

dottensilk is correct , she looks to be splash.

lav would dilute the black, so she couldn't have any black on her :)

she is very pretty

She looks splash to me. Could also be a light blue, sometimes they show patches like that. Lovely looking bird! Get her a black boyfriend. :)
