    You have a *light type Blue Laced Red Wyandotte.

    *When you breed two Blue birds, you get 1/3 "true blue" offspring (a slaty grey color), 1/3 black (or nearly black) offspring, and 1/3 "splash" or "light" offspring (this is the kind your hen is). She is still pure BLRWyandotte, she just carries two copies of the Blue gene rather than one.
