    Like Blue with a distinct grey cast. Wings and feathers are gray colored. No black markings at all.. the black markings are replaced with a darker gray.

    Not the best angle.. if you look real close, can see a few small feathers on shoulder showing the gray color.

    BTW, they are cut off, still sort of can work for color comparison.. chick on left is purple and in front a blue..
