Are you asking how to tell a blue chick from a black or splash chick?

This is a splash bird. Basically the color is a light smoke/misty grey, with flecks of darker grey or black. 

 

Blue birds are darker, and a uniform shade. The "good" blue birds are laced, meaning each feather has an outline of a darker shade of blue. I've not had good lacing with most of my blue birds, but it's not something I've been able to breed for. They're very striking when you get it right, though.
