    Here she is... I call her Blueberry. She had this bluish tinge to her fuzz as a peep and now she is all gray with the brown collar - just like her sisters, except the others are black instead of gray like her.

    Has anyone seen this before?

    That's pretty cool. Since I think blue is a mute black or something, doesn't sound unreasonable!

    Wouldnt this indicate that her sire had to be blue or splash? I was under the impression that you can't get blue without a blue or splash parent.

    Black sex links are made with RIR roos and barred rock hens. I'm not sure how she would have gotten the blue tint but she is beautiful!
