    So recently it was confirmed my Bruta is actually Brutus. His wattles filed out, and his neck feathers have become quite long and beautiful. We are just quite confused by his coloring. He's been a lovely grey (I guess this is called blue? ) but lately he's been developing red-gold coloring on his shoulders and neck feathers. Any ideas? Is he just a feathered mutt? He's a big gentle giant whom the girls don't take very seriously yet.

    He looks like a Blue Cochin with some red/gold leakage to me.

    I don't think there is a Blue Copper Cochin, but if there were, he does look similar to that color pattern.

    I agree.

    Many blue birds have some red leakage, so I think that blue is the color.
