    Yes, you have 1 splash and 2 blue Laced Red Wyandottes pictured... I see that. But I’m still thinking WhoDat’s cockerel is just black. Beautiful either way :love

    If he was blue... this is what the coloring would be more like (**NOT MY PICTURE**)

    When he molts into adult feathers, you will have a better idea of coloring.
