Blue. Black would be darker.
Here is my black.
Here are my two blue hens with their brood of chicks. Please excuse one hen's poopy butt. They would not get up from the nest, and you know what happens when they don't get up.. :sick

It's happened vice versa to me. My blue hens have produced two black chicks :p Though the majority of them are blue, I do have some whites and silver colours out of them.
