    Can someone please tell me what color this is considered? He's 6 months old. His parents are both Blue Copper Marans. The other roos from this hatch look like dad with copper hackles. The last pic are the parents. Thank-you

    I would call him birchen blue spangled, but that is not really a color.

    Thank-you, I looked at pics of the blue birchen marans, they don't have any copper in them. I was thinking of selling him since I already have 2 large blue copper roos, but now I think I'll breed him. I like the fact that he's different.

    I think he's birchen with a lot of red/copper leakage.
