    It looks like a splash laced red wyandotte chick to me. When breeding blue to blue, you'll get about 50% blue, 25% black and 25% splash chicks. Splash is a very light blue with darker splashes mixed in. The feathers will be red in the middle and splash around the edges, though it will probably be a couple months before you start to see those nicely laced adult feathers.

    I think that it is a Splash Laced Red Wyandotte.

    It depends on whether the splash laced is the male or female in the crossing. A splash laced red male over a silver laced female you will get blue patterned red laced pullets and blue patterned yellow/golden laced cockerels. A silver laced male over a splash laced red female will result in blue patterned redshouldered/cream laced pullets and blue patterned yellow/golden laced cockerels.
