    Splash is randomly placed irregularly shaped dark blue "blobs" on feathers--those are very regular, and look to be laced (as are the hackles, saddles & tails) and penciled (wings) as are columbians.
     
  3. The only unfortunate thing is, the large Showgirl crows like his lungs are going to fall out, and you can probably hear him three states over. i'm hoping he becomes more melodious over time.

    They're Sizzles but it still applies.

    The color pattern for the OPs birds is Columbian - the OP has stumbled on some amazing quality birds in a new variety.

    Did you ever find out how to breed them to continue/enhance the columbian pattern?
