Question Is he a grey?

Ive just had a thought, well i know that itchy is some kind of dominant pied with yellow face type two, but what colour is he

obviously as he is white based he must be a blue, but it is very dark and on close inspection it looks like a grey, but im not sure any help?

No, if he breeds then 50% of his chicks will also carry a grey factor. If he is double factor grey then all his chicks will have a single factor but he is more than likely not double factor.
