What Is This Rooster's Color Called?

I'm curious if there is any standard name to call the coloring of the blue colored rooster in the front of the photo, he was slate gray from the time he hatched, but as he's maturing he's gotten dark gray head and tail and has some yellow colored feathers growing on his back or the top of his folded wings as you can see in the picture. He's some kind of Amerecauna cross I think and about 4 months old. Real different looking.

The little Legbar cross hen in the photo I just love, she's from the same hatch, and she has the brightest yellow legs I ever saw on a chicken,

Blue x black gives 50/50 each blue and black.

I don't know where that white leakage is coming from, it's funky looking. His offspring may have the same leakage and make for some interesting looking birds.
