Hi, i just wondered what people would call this colour of my polish boy? Note the grey patches on his legs?
Thanks! :)

He looks like a splash bird to me which you'd get as a 25% chance offspring from a white crested blue x white crested blue or from a splash x splash mating.

Great thanks. Any idea what colour offspring would be on black, cuckoo and w/c black hens?

I'm not quite sure, I'd start a new thread so somebody more knowledgeable than me could comment. I have a feeling that splash x black would give you blue, but I'm not sure how the w/c black would react or the cuckoo. :(
