It's technically a "flaw" in a blue orpington, called red or gold leakage. Some people I believe started breeding more lacing and red into it to try to develop blue laced red. I'm just guessing on this all, but check out this guys link... He has some similar. There are some project orpington pages on byc that have similar birds too. http://www.naturalark.com/engorps.html I could never show him because of his color flaws, but he is very handsome.
