Now that I see the bird, I believe Karen is correct. It appears to
be a WF Australian Cinnamon and that would account for the lesser
color in the body compared to an AC that is not WF.
The one I question is the male in the background. It may be the
photo, but I don't see it as being a Violet bird, but again, could
just be the way the camera captured the colors.
PS Here's a WF AC Violet hen to give you a reference point. This is
her as a young bird. I'll post a mature picture of her shortly.
There is a color difference as they mature.
