    That is a silver pied hen of some type, breeding that to an ordinary india blue male should give you offspring that look like india blue with white eye characteristics and birds split to white or split to silver pied, that is assuming they are of the wild type with no other hidden colors or patterns. This as been discussed before, check the link i posted.
