    Very slight chance it is a Blue Cayuga, but he’s probably just a mixed breed.

    Does he have a white chest? There are Swedish blue, but this guy doesn't really have the same look

    The white bib Swedish have I am fairly certain is dominant, so without a bib I don’t think it’s a Swedish.

    Yeah, bibs from what I have seen is a pretty dominant trait. It can manifest as white spots or a stripe though also.

    He is solid grey/blue. There are slightly different hues on some feathers, but it's all grey. No white whatsoever. He doesn't shimmer like Cayuga seem to (I've never seen one in person, but his feathers don't appear different colors when you look at different angles.) He came from Rural King, so Privett or Hoover, I believe. He doesn't stand like a runner, but his coloring seems to match the blue runners on the Hoover site.
