    Looks to be blue gold laced. As in gold laced, with blue replacing (diluting) the black. His lacing is not as good as it ought to be for a show bird, but regardless of that, he is very handsome. He could be the result of buff laced breeding, using splash (in his case, blue) instead of dominant white, as his ground colour looks a bit on the light side for a gold laced bird.

    Hiya thankyou for your reply, I do not show birds, so I dont mind him not being show standard, I love his colouring, really unusual..what colour hen would be the best to get him, to hatch out lovely coloured chicks?? I have a splash and a chamois with him at the minute. Many thanks for all your help [​IMG]

    Personally I would suggest another gold laced.
