I knew I would get your attention. He is not blue in the least unless he is shedding. If you look at the lips that is his normal color. He is a deep dark brown almost black so when he sheds he appears blue. I have a female that is the same color and when I bought her the person sold her as a blue. I knew she wasnt but I still love the color. So hopefully the whole blue crested debate can come to a rest. There is no blue crested.
