Here is Steppenwulf, who has the "pencilling" on his neck, and Blue Ray, who has black on his neck.

Opinions?

I think, just for my own personal project, next spring I will cross Steppenwulf on my 2 Cuckoo Marans hens & see what happens.
Marocks!

Blue Ray will be crossed on my splash Rock hen Heidi.

Blue rocks can have dusky yellow legs also.

I dont know how that first one ended up that way. He's gorgeous. What an interesting genetic combination with the barred and the blue, Ive never seen anything like him.

That looks a lot more likely to be a very dark dark blue on Blue Ray, not black. Unless it gives off the green sheen I'd bet on blue not black.

The dark blues don't give off the green sheen.

I've a very very dark blue silkie I thought was black til I got him in the sunlight. Nope dark blue. Surprise.

It's okay I wanted all blues

They are both gorgeous, Blue Ray has better type.

You might get a very nice mix off your cuckoo marans since marans can carry birchen, and he looks to be silver based, blue birchen. In the long run interesting stuff could happen.
