    Someone said he is a lemon blue splash but I thought he just had gold leakage. What do you think?

    looks like a splash with some red pigments leaking to me also. Lemons should have yellow or reddish yellow in the pyle region ( hackles, back, shoulders, etc). Lemon blue birds are birchen and not extended black. Your bird is most likely extended black.
