    If the ground colour is black it's a birchen. If it's blue it's a Silver Blue. Kind of hard to tell the ground colour from your picture.
    Definately not a Silver Duckwing-pattern is wrong.

    He is awesome, Ive' got the silver-blues, raising now. They're still wee lil' tots. I can't wait till they get all growed up too.
