It appears to be a blue check, but the image is tiny, can you post a bigger one? If the forum doesn't let you, let me know and I'll change some settings. Still getting used to this!

Sort of. It is either a plain blue check, or smoky blue check (aka "slate"). Have a look at the tail, do you see white strips on the two outside feathers? Maybe look up pictures of smoky/slate pigeons and see if its similar.

I looked up pictures of the slate pigeons, she doesn't really look like them. Here is another picture of her.

I still think smoky is the most likely option at the moment. Have a look at this picture, see the white on the outside of the outermost tail feathers? Check your bird, if the white strip is missing then it is almost certainly smoky (aka, slate).

Thank you very, very much! she doesn't have the white stripes on her tail. How would I go about breeding more like her?
