Silver Blue coloration is in the ABA 2014 Standard page 259, paperback.  The head is silvery white for both male and female.  Hackle lustrous dark blue LACED  with silvery white.  front of neck Slaty Blue  and with silvery white.  The saddle is also LACED.   I can send the page to you offline if you are interested.  Lemme know.

Silver Blue and Blue Silver are two different color patterns.

Thanks Mike.  Then you're right, there isn't any in the ABA Standard.

For more on this read replies 7, 8 & 9 on the 1st page of this topic and #15 on page two.
I believe Blue Birchen would be a more appropriate name than Silver Blue, since it would have the birchen/brown red pattern.
Blue Silver males would have a duckwing...silver/white wing triangle.
Blue Birchen would have a crow wing...no wing triangle.

There is no Blue Birchen in the ABA or APA Standard, so I guess John you are speaking hypothetically?

Yes, since "blue birchen" would be a birchen but with blue replacing the black areas, just as a blue wheaten is a wheaten with blue replacing the black areas.
Of course I'm not suggesting the APA would actually go along with a variety name I suggest.  ;)

The Silver Blue Wheaten colour pattern is inactive in the ABA but if you request a copy of the colour standard from Karen Unrath  at the following address -- enclose a SASE she will send you a copy.

I don't believe I've ever heard of that one.

Silver Wheaten is just wheaten with sex linked silver replacing sex linked gold.  Then if you add in the Bl gene you have Silver blue wheaten.   In these varieties the red portions of the males are replaced with white.   So a silver wheaten male looks like a silver duckwing.

That's why it's inactive.  As a member I'm requesting a copy of the colour standard.

He's very nice Russ, although I would like to see less tail spread from the side view.  There is always something to work on.  I do like that bull neck on him.  You get a better contrast of the colors than by using lavender, and you can breed two varieties in one pen.  How is the temperament of your Silver & Blue Silver line in general?  I am getting some Silver bantam chicks now, thanks to you and John.
