Muffin's Mutation?
I am intrigued to see what people might come up with for Muffin. When I bought her I was told she is a lace-wing but I think there is so much more going on and I am not convinced about the lace-wing label. I have taken some pics, they don't do her colours justice but they are the best I have managed so far. This first one is obviously from the front ;)

The next one I managed to get a shot of her back, the green is not showing so well but it is there

This one is her left side trying to get a shot of her wing. The blue is showing a bit stronger than she actually is, and her wings are quite cinnamon in life.

Finally one of the back of her neck...colours are slightly brighter in life but not much.

Oh and her belly is slightly more violet than it shows in the first pic :)

Opaline cinnamon yellow faced cobalt :)The markings do look black but i am sure the spots show cinnamon.

This is a normal cinnamon cobalt

I agree with Teegzy :)

What a pretty little hen!

Thanks guys :) . Barry your normal cinnamon cobalt (who is very beautiful by the way) is much more blue than Muffin. In life Muffin's colours are really really pale. The side shot I have posted has her looking more blue than she is. Her wings are very brown in life, again these photos are not the best but are the best I have been able to get! Her spots are indeed brown :)

She has just started moulting again but then we are heading into spring so I guess they will all be doing it again, having only just done it going into winter!
