    Black feathers would be very dark, and the breast would be black or white, not that slate grey coloring that they are. Eventually it will be all that color. If it wasn't 1 am I'd take a pic of my blacks to show you. Too bad I don't have any blues to get a comparison shot.

    Maybe someone will come along with pics of black and blue babies to show you?
