What to do with the Blues (barnevelder, marans, wyandotte)

We hatched shipped eggs this spring and got five lovely double silver laced barnevelders. But in that group we also ended up with a blue barnevelder rooster. They are about 9 weeks old now, and I'm thinking about how to group and house them going forward. We also ended up this spring with two blue laced red wyandottes (through a replacement for splash marans) we weren't planning on. And the two splash marans also joined the group a bit later. My plans for next year are to breed double silver laced barnevelders, olive egger F1 crosses and cream legbars.

Question... would I be likely to get anything interesting if I bred the blue barnevelder rooster with the blue wyandottes and splash marans? My breeding experience is just beginning, so please let me know if this is a bad idea for some reason. We like this rooster a lot for his personality so far. Thank you!
