    He could be a blue barred. I have a blue barred hen and she looks similar.

    Quote:You can breed to a blue, black, or splash. If you breed to a black barred then you will get 50% blue barred and 50% black barred. If you breed to plain blue, black, or splash, you will get 50% solid colored and 50% barred, but they could be blue, black, or splash.
