All blue's hatch out 1 of 3 ways...blue black and splash. The blue can be from very light to near black and usually you will have several shades in the same hatch.If it's black on the top it will be black or if it's a smokey near black to gray/blue it will be a darker blue.The dark blue and black can be real hard to tell the difference until they dry and fluff
