    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.
