large grey bird with sky blue chest

by Jessica
(Bristol, Avon, UK)

It was on my garden fence a few days ago, my husband thought it could be a cuckoo but having looked at cuckoo pictures, it is not a cuckoo and it is bigger. From beak to tip of tail it is about 2 and a half feet long.

The wings and top part are a medium greay and its belly underside was almost a sky blue colour and very smooth.
I have never seen a bird like this before and thought it could have been an excape pet. Can you help me ? It didn't have a hooked beak.
