    I just got a new tom for my blue slate girls this weekend. I have never seen a blue slate with these markings and I just wanted to share some pics with BYC peeps.

    I hope everyone is having a great day.

    Yes, a Mottled Blue I would imagine. Blue and Black are closely related, so I imagine breeding a Mottled Black and Self Blue or something of that nature could eventually result in something like that.

    I think it is pretty, so if you ever decide to get rid of it let me know and I will come pick him up! Haha
