    I really had my heart set on trying to get an ash tom, so beautiful and they'd be so unusual. But I do not want to have to get any shipped from a hatchery in the mail.

    They are a blueish grey look like ashes. So they are called blue ash. As far as I know.

    Here's a link to the ALBC page with some pics of slates ,Is this what you mean.

    If so the official APA variety name is actually "Slate"
    Blue ash is part of the description but not what they are called.
