dont worry about the Napkin, thats the last thing I see when determining a birds genome on looks.. that appearst to be a Blue Tailed red bird(cant tell sex by pic) basically a columbian restricted bird that show blue on the black feathers(which are restricted to tail and fly feathers)

wow, I don't even think I know what that means. Can you um...dumb it down for me a little bit? Links or pictures of what you mean? Please forgive!

the following pullets are Buff columbian the only difference between them and your birds could be that they show black/blue feathers on the neck hackle,(which your bird may actually show but I cant see it now) now one hen has a black taild and the other one a blue tailed.. now your bird appears to be red enhanced, making it red/orange instead of buff
