    I picked him up to help defend my young flock, he is 9-10 months old. Just curious on the color, I've seen a lot of blue roosters but none with this mix of colors.

    Thanks. :)

    His color looks like Blue Copper to me, or possibly blue with lots of red/gold leakage.

    He looks like Blue Copper to me, too.

    I also agree with Blue Copper.

    Thank you all!

    The lady sold him as a Cochin, I knew beforehand he wasn't as they don't come in this color but needed an established rooster. Not too bossy, doesn't bother people and seems to be taking excellent care of the ladies. :)

    I would call him blue copper too, but if he's a Cochin, he may have come from someone's "lemon blue" project. I've seen a lot of lemon blue Cochins that look like that, they aren't properly colored for lemon blues, but they're still very much a work in progress, so lots of crazy beautiful birds pop out :)
