My species vary a lot in color.

Following up @randal'thor's answer I think it's

Jeff Atwood's unicorn avatar

I am named after the second greatest creator

Jeff Atwood co-founded (the precursor to) SE with Joel Spolsky.
All the other hints are self-explanatory, I think.

Maybe it's

an accepted answer on Stack Exchange.

My body is green

Refers to the green checkmark on the accepted answer.

My hair and eyebrows are blue

The upvote/downvote arrows turn blue when pressed.

My eyes are a very light shade of purple

The background colour on a spoilertag is very slightly off-white, and could be a very pale purple.

I have the sharpest beak in all my friends

A metaphorical way of saying it's the best answer.

I painted my wall and floor in a light shade of purple

Spoilertags again?

I am named after the second greatest creator

Not sure about this line.

All the hints fit, if

we take "colour" in the 3rd hint to be a metaphor for type/quality of answer.

Second try:

BoltClock's a Unicorn.

Most of it is fairly self-explanatory from the picture in the link: green body, blue hair and eyebrows, very pale purple eyes, purple background. Probably

"beak" = "horn".

I'm not sure about "named after the second greatest creator" though. As for the hints:

if you've spent much time on Meta.SE, you'll know that unicorns are something of a meme there (e.g. see this page). They come in many different colours and are physical objects whose existence is ... shall we say, doubted.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, it is a unicorn. It isn't BoltClock's unicorn though. $\endgroup$ – ʇolɐǝz ǝɥʇ qoq Apr 4 '15 at 23:51

I know it's not the right answer due to your hints, but I'll post this anyway:

A Christmas tree

My body is green

Christmas trees are evergreens.

My hair and eyebrows are blue

They could be decorated with blue tinsel.

My eyes are a very light shade of purple

Christmas lights could be red/pink/purple.

I have the sharpest beak in all my friends

Pine needs can be sharp. Or the star at the top of the tree could be sharp.

I painted my wall and floor in a light shade of purple

Purple Christmas lights would color the walls and floor purple.

I am named after the second greatest creator

Christmas is named after (Jesus) Christ, who could be considered second to God.
