    It might be a lemon blue cochin or possibly a birchen. I'm not too familiar with cochins, but good with bantam varieties.

    Thanks! I was told my boy was blue.. But the gold was the patridge in him... Does this make sense... I cannot find another pic like him..

    Yes. It's definitely a blue bird with gold leakage.

    Yes. Be selective of the offspring. And every time you have a bird with gold in try to cull it.
