my 1st answer was going to be Grey Grey wing as well then I saw the last picture

he has a very light sky blue running from his neck up through the bars on the back of his head which is making me think dilute sky blue grey wing

here is a Sky blue Grey wing


and here is a sky blue dilute



and then add in the grey wing which dilutes the body color any way by 50% and i believe it would cause it to look like Benny

but this is just a guess, i'm not 100% sure but i'm 85% sure

He looks a bit like he may be sick, he may need a tonic or something

Greywing can dilute the body colour up to 50%. The first picture looks like fairly typical greywing sky blue. A dilute's body colour should be diluted by 80% or more
